Almost a finish!

2014-01-02 18.23.19I didn’t have time yesterday to start quilting this, but I did get it all pinned up before we left to go to my mom and dad’s for dinner.  I did manage to get it all quilted this afternoon, just simple straight line quilting. I first posted about this on December 23rd, and I will be putting the binding on it tomorrow.  At least on the front, I almost always hand stitch bindings to the back, mainly because I like the relaxing hand work.

2014-01-02 16.57.45I did a few more rows on my test piece and now I’m seeing the pattern I should see.  The group was right, I was doing just fine – I’m good at second guessing myself!  So I unraveled the whole thing and put the yarn away, I think I’m ready to start casting on for the baby’s blanket. I have to cast on 235 stitches, that might be all I get done tonight! Hopefully I’ll be posting soon with another finish!
