hand quilting...

I love doing it, but after the "sewing elbow" got bad it didn't like me very much. Poor Cheddar Doll quilt sat patiently waiting.

Finally this last week I finished the borders and got the binding sewn. I even used some of the fancy new designs I learned from this book. Now on to the tumbler quilt...?What to do, what to do???

Perhaps this picture is a better view of the quilt? Geez, Pixel, that's just the way I wanted to take the picture.

Glad you were able to finish your quilt. I love the fabric combination. My son would say Pixel was making sure the quilt was satisfactory. :-)
