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.
