Another finished quilt - I even hand bound this one! 😳 it’s for me to keep, so it felt worth it. -
Definitely not going to be an every quilt sort of thing. Just the special ones. πŸ˜‰

Because finishing a quilt so you can try hand binding while on vacation is muuuuuch more important than packing. 🀣 Afterall, I can just buy more socks. πŸ˜‰

Some quilts just call for fun quilting. Even if some of the backgrounds are too busy to see the quilting well - it was fun, and I savored it. πŸ’›πŸ’› #longarmquilting #handiquiltersimplysixteen #glidethread #freehandquilting #mineallmine

This morning I loaded up an old scrap quilt I made in ... 2013? Is it really that old?
Clearly though, I like polka dots and always have. And always will. πŸ˜‰

Switched to yellow thread. πŸ˜‰ though it shows white, I swear it’s a lemon yellow.
Hope you still love it @neverjustjennifer 😘😘😘

Hubby erased January and February off of our calendar so he could help with a work problem. πŸ˜‚ I’m not sure what level β€œnerdy” this is, but I found it entertaining. -
Pizza still isn’t here though. πŸ™„

I only just realized I never shared the full reveal of this baby quilt I made a few months ago. Whoops. At least the baby got it before she made an entrance. πŸ˜‰ -
I used a #gingiberfabric Cat panel with a sort of improv quarter log cabin sort of thing. Bright happy and full of cat prints - just what @itsjenfullerton would have ordered, if I’d bothered to ask. πŸ˜‚

Hubby is very sick today, so I stayed home to take care of him and scrub everything with bleach. πŸ˜– all is calm right now, so I put the last seam in this quilt top. Hardie is helping quality control. πŸ˜‚ #itsgoingtobealongday

Finishing off this quilt for @neverjustjennifer had to repair a few spots (couldn’t bear to take out the seahorses, so I patched it). Now, I just need to cut some batting, and decide thread color (colors?). Yeah quilting!!

If I just focus on the pretty fabrics, and the ritual of pressing seams open I can forget my 17 mosquito bites and the work week to come. Right?
