Ooooh...I might even make the Ausie deadline too!



I am so excited...I took my quilt to my 'long arm fairy' on Thursday past and just got it back today!  Wow...that was fast.  I am so happy with how she quilted it.  Basically a vine of lazy daisies in the stripping and pieced block areas.  No quilting other than an outline within my appliqued blocks.  I think it looks good although she though maybe we should do a few little loop-de-doos with in the blocks.  Anyways, I am so excited to have it back in record time...now it's all up to me to get that binding on within the hours left.  The window is closing...yikes!  Chooky this is so much fun...not only the making of the quilt but being part of a lovely group of ladies from all over the world...although the Ausies do dominate, dont they?!  Well I have thoroughly enjoyed being a part of this group for a second year.  I am hoping and praying there will be a third.  Off to prep my binding now.
