Just in Time

It doesn't get any closer than this. I did have a back up spool of YLI, just in case.

This is my first piece from Gwen Marstons workshop I took last May. I made a second one, quilted it and gifted it. This one is for me.

The finished size is 22 x 24 and I loved doing the hand quilting. No marking on the borders, I just guesstimated a needles length between each row of stitching and liked the angled lines, it works with the piecing in the center.  Tonight I'll start the hand stitching on the binding.
Solids are fun to play with, I'll be doing more this spring!

I love the look of it. The stitching is just perfect and gives it a wonderful finish. There is a ton of movement in your quilt.

It looks great! I love your hand quilting.

You make me feel like a laggard. Mine is still in pieces on the cutting table. But it's on my list for this year. *fingers crossed*
