End of the Week

Yesterday I completed my little project.. I know, hard to believe right? I love the size and I think I'm going to try more small quilts like this.. super cute but a not super commitment.

I followed Monica's lead on the quilting, although I did mine on the machine using some heavier weight cotton thread, Auriful on the gray spool. I like this thread a lot for machine quilting, it has a nice sheen. I'm running out of this white color. I would give you the number, but I can't tell which is the color number on the spool. I don't think it's white, but maybe a step down. I should ask my friend Pat, she's got her own collection.

Yeah, I know, the binding isn't really finished, you can see the pins, but this was the last chance for a picture before it became too gloomy for the final ironing board finish. Did you see this news? Yes, that is snow on Saturday!!! SHOCKER.

So people, have a warm safe weekend! If there's any snow you'll see a photo of it come Monday morning! xo

That is a very cute little quilt. Maybe I should try small ones. A lot of ideas can be tried if I keep them small.

You've given me a new mantra to help me get through all the ideas--super cute without super commitment. Great advice!

Stay warm and have a great weekend!

Thanks for the advise on the thread. Thread is a whole quilting subject unto itself. What to piece with, what to applique with, what to quilt with?

Love the little quilt and love your binding choice!
