Free Motion Quilting

Today is a good day!!

 I decided to quilt today - and this is my youngest Grand-daughters Happy Quilt! 
Would you believe I started this about 18 months ago...found a small tear in one of the fabrics when I had it nearly all quilted  - just the 2" border to go... I was so upset - that was it.
Now I am almost finished the  border - FMQ :) with a bit of freehand drawing,
and later I will fix the tear....its really only tiny after all.
I hope to get the binding sewn on and finish it!

My FNSI is planned :)

I will take a full picture when I have finished and washed it.

I'm glad you got in some stitching time, I managed a little myself. The quilt looks really terrific, someone is going to be very happy to get it soon.

OH NO!! I hate when I find a tear in a quilt!! Are you going to put an applique over it? This is such a pretty girl quilt :0)

It looks beautiful! Looks like you have a great set-up for machine quilting large quilts.
Too bad about the tear.

Rebecca said...

Beautiful quilting!! I bet our little lady bug would look great over the little tear ... your granddaughter will love it. What a keepsake!
Oh Yes... love the colours tooo!

As it's a gift of love, applique a little heart over the tear and add a few more around the sashing to make it a design feature.
