A Finish... Finally!

I had this quilt quilted since July 24th and I have been slowly but surely working on hand sewing the binding down. It was a thicker fabric for the binding and flannel for the backing and it seemed to take forever to sew the binding down.


Well, I FINALLY finished the binding tonight at a different Guild small group meeting! I was so exciting I think that I jumped up and down! Well, maybe not that excited, but I was still happy to be able to move on to another quilt with thinner binding and not flannel backing. In fact, I was able to get an entire side done of the second quilt in about 40 minutes and it took me 2 hours to get the last side done on the first quilt. Isn't that awful? Oh well, it's a finish for the FIUM.

Well, tomorrow is Friday and I am very excited! Saturday, I am going to Patrice's house in the morning so that we can work on our pieces and homework for the Courier bag class. I also have a couple of secret projects that I want to get to work on this weekend, too. Here is the fabric for those. I forgot to post them and Patrice wanted to see the them.
