Quilt #1: Finished!

    Ashley's Journey--my first quilt ever--is finished! I did the last of the hand-quilting on Monday and put the binding on Tuesday evening. Here's a photo of it, taken from above our two-story foyer. I took one of the back, too. Can't really get much of an idea of scale from these, but it finished at 65 x 88 inches. It fits on a twin-sized bed.

    It makes me smile everytime I look into the grandkids' room. = )  Such a sense of accomplishment and gratification. It's been about 9 months since I purchased the fabrics. And those 9 months have been quite the adventure--in more ways than one!

    God is good ... all the time!!

I am impressed, so many projects completed so soon and a few other live issues to contend with.
I too have a sewing room, love to be able to walk away and leave the mess until the porject is finished or put aside until another one if finished. I call it multi quilting, some call it ADD.
I love the placemats, will keep that in mind for another day.
