Finished

I didn’t sew today but I did get a final photo of this little quilt. It’s the one I big stitch quilted and I needed to wash out the blue pen I used to mark the quilting lines that went through the center of the blocks. It was just a small quilt but I really enjoyed this one!

Under the wire

My last finish for 2014 – a small HeartStrings quilt I pieced during our project in November. I quilted straight lines alongside the seams and then a curvy line down the middle of the blocks.

When we got home from taking Keith’s Mom back, I pulled out my binding and finished stitching down this one pieced by Sharon. After the first of the year, I’ll get this one and the other bound ones washed and ready to donate.

And in the mail, a postcard from Vicki. We’re not putting up a tree so maybe this will be my substitute! Be sure to check her blog if you’re following her Drunkard’s Path sew along. She has some more layouts to inspire you today. As for me, I’ve got two more Drunkard’s Path quilts cut out but I won’t get to them until the binding is done or even later …. Maybe I can play again in January?!

This is one of my HeartStrings quilts and I finished the binding last night.

After the binding was done I set it on the table to wait until today to photograph and kept stopping to admire my freehand Baptist Fan quilting. I just LOVE how it looks on our HeartStrings quilts and that its so easy to do.

Keith leaves this in a little while and my work table is already back up in the living room. I’m knitting now but after a massage this afternoon, I’ll trim, pin baste, and bind!

Hard to say you don’t like string quilts when you look at Beth’s from yesterday and this one from blocks pieced by Marianne!
