Almost there


After seeing Maria's post today, I'd thought I'd try and inspire those like me that are almost there. I'm on the last 2 borders, I'm loving the dimples I'm creating in my hand quilting. I'm working a little every night. My poor Lucy Boston is very jealous.

Back to quilting.....

Your quilting is wonderful. I bet now that you may even be close to finishing.

Thank you so much. I have not done any for 2 weeks, and am itching to finish it. Maybe this afternoon, I'll try and fit a little in.
