SEWING GOODNESS

While I was waiting for my son to come in (driving from Arizona), I started prep work on this quilt.

Then the next day while waiting for him to get up (he had been awake for 24 hours), I finished the top and started quilting it.

Then while the guys went to Bass Pro, I put the binding on.
Indian Summer fabrics from Inchworm Fabrics.
and....the binding on this quilt as well.
It feels so good to be back in a sewing room. Even better that the mess is contained to one room and not the whole downstairs.

It's nice to see you back in the sewing room! Trip to Bass Pro, huh? That sounds like a male version of a trip to a quilt shop! :)

Always such a busy bee and everything turns out so cute. Glad things are getting into order for you and you can settle down to some serious quilting. Blessings Sandra

It does feel good to sew when you've not been able to much, doesn't it?
