Whew what a trip! I am not sure how we packed so much into a week. Good news is I was able to finish my Birthday quilt just in the nick of time, oh what Birthday quilt you say? I was so busy trying to squeeze it in I didn't even get to tell you about it. It started with a pile of Voile I had been
|Up on the design wall|
|Finished top at Guild meeting|
|Quilting with the walking foot|
|I used Quilters Dream Orient batting which has such a great weight|
|Back made with leftovers|
|If only I had my better camera|
|It's perfect with their new couch!|
The voile was the perfect choice because Katie and Richie have a cool vintage meets modern style and I think voile has a great vintage fabric feel. I had two weeks and spent most of the Sisters trip cutting fabric and then finishing the top in time for our guild meeting. Somehow I quilted it in a day with just simple random straight line quilting. The binding happened in the car thanks to my husband who drove the 9 1/2 hours on his own while I sat next to him sewing away. I seriously finished about 20 minutes from their house with only minimal hand cramping. A big thank you also goes to my son Avery for understanding one more delay in me finishing his quilt!

- Working with Voile: I didn't have a hard time at all and I was expecting to. I think a walking foot is a must for quilting though.
