Yay! I have a Finished Object! One less UFO in the sewing studio!!
I had sent my checkerboard quilt off to Cotie Campbell in Kansas, to be quilted. It came back Monday and it is sooooo pretty! I am so pleased with the quilting and also with the wonderful communication and responsiveness of Cotie herself. She was an absolute pleasure to do business with, and I feel like I made a new quilting friend in the process! I will definitely send her quilts to be long-arm quilted in the future.
Here is a link to Cotie's website. She has some gorgeous pictures there....and here is her webshots link. More beautiful quilts to see!
I cut 480+ inches of binding, pressed it, and brought my machine down to the kitchen table.
I stitched, and stitched, and stitched.
(Pay no mind to me, no make up, unshowered, and determined to finish this quilt today!)
And I stitched some more.
And it's done. Hopefully in the pictures below, you can see some of Cotie's awesome work - I wish my meandering looked that good!! Her stitches are perfectly even!
(This is only 1/5 of it, folded up and laid across the table.....)
(I used a decorative stitch to sew on the binding - I think my hands would have fallen off if I had tried to hand sew it, plus, I think the machine stitching is more durable!)
And I'm off to bed. It's almost tomorrow already! Sheesh!
