I was SOOOO excited AND exhausted but I finished sewing on the binding at 6:00 pm Friday evening!! Yes, a completed quilt in 5 days.
( You need to read my previous post to know what this post is talking about )
Hubby came home a few minutes after I finished it. I was glad I had moved my sewing
room back upstairs where all my gift wrap, bows and such are up
here too. I quickly found some ribbon and tied it around the
folded and rolled up quilt.
Hubby was really surprised when I gifted it to him. He was REALLY
impressed I had actually machine quilted it. Especially
in a design other than just straight lines. ( I was patting myself on the back for this one too! )
Here it is…. I know it's just squares, but I wanted it simple so I could make it quick and fast
as fast could be.
I chose some older fabrics
that have been lurking around for a while 'cause I'm sure tired of looking at them
every time I thumb through my stash!!
I knew Hubby and the Goober dog would like it regardless!
( The Goober dog lays in the chair every night with Hubby so it's his quilt too! )
This gingham on the back has been in my stash l-o-n-g before I knew to call it my stash.
I added this tan fruit/veggie in 'cause it has corn and various other
fruits and veggies Hubby has in his garden.
I like it……especially now that it's finished. There are sunflowers and a block FULL of red tomatoes.
An African print toward the top, various type prints and a few flowers
thrown in so he can stay in touch with his FEMININE side! (snicker)
Maybe I should challenge myself with deadlines on future quilts and inspire myself to
get more accomplished………….naaahhhhhh!
I'm headed outside now,
it's 84 degrees!!!!
