KONA BAY GOODNESS

So I rummaged through some scraps and found the binding for this quilt. What do ya think?

Then this morning I was thinking...... I am going to finish that Kona Bay quilt. A friend and I were looking at my quilts and I was kinda embarrassed that all that was needed to finish this quilt was 3 sides to the border. That was it....

So I asked myself...."What is the stinking hold up?"


I can do this.....so I got my quilt out....turned the TV on for distraction to keep my mind on track and just started finishing it up.

Here it is finished.!!!! More knuckle claps are in order......I am soooooooooo happy to have this done.
Next on the menu is an Orange Slice quilt...I am sure it just needs the borders quilted and a binding.

So....I am telling myself....I can do that too....I CAN!!

I don't know how you quilt a large quilt on a table sewing machine. You must really have some great skills. I just tried doing my bedrunner on it and made a real mess of things. Spent the entire evening unstitching. Love your quilt. Great job!

Doesn't a finish feel fantastic? I can't wait to see the Orange Slice too. I need to get that one done as I loved the pattern.

Hey Barb! I'm finally back from my blog land exile! LOL! I think the binding on that first quilt looks wonderful...that is such a happy little quilt. And yee-haw for finishing up your Kona Bay quilt...it's awesome! I'm sure it feels really great to have that done.

I just finished up that Salt Air quilt I was making for a wedding gift...the wedding was in March! Yikes, I'm a bit behind, don't ya think? But I'm taking photos tomorrow and then putting it in the mail and on it's way. That feels good, too!

XOXO,

Cyndi
