My binding wasn't wide enough but at least I know what to expect next time. I also found I need to seriously work on an ergonomically correct table/chair for next time as my back and neck are very sore from quilting for 6 hours straight... but at least I got the "very first quilt" out of the way without any serious property damage or suffering any panic attacks LOL!
Below is the big reveal... it's a bit Marsha Brady (whom I love!) and I think will look fantastic on my patio table with a bottle of Pinot Grigio and a few glasses.... now if that sun would just come out already!
Below is what happens when hubby and kids decide to cook dinner so I can quilt. Pizzas of course, but also Finn made pretzels and Loch made some cinnamon rolls with daddy's help :) Nobody said things would be healthy when mama's busy, but it sure was delicious! At least it wasn't Ramen Noodles.
Sadly, I have to put the new toy away for a few days while I take care of some garden-related things. The mess in the attic (lights and heat mat, chains and ext cords) got hauled down and I can now start my first flat of seeds for 2011.
See - there's plenty of messy stuff in the house, it was just stuffed up in the attic!
Now I'm off to spend some quality time with a notepad and the garden binder/seed stash! Tomorrow's the big day.
