Joyce's quilt

I finally finished the baby quilt for Joyce's cancer event.  I get such a rush sewing on the binding.  I don't know if It's because I love hand sewing or that the quilt is almost finished.  It just makes me want to get another quilt started.
Things I learned:
When you have a deadline, quilt making is not as fun.
My FMQ skills are improving, although very slowly
I really enjoy FMQ, I'd like to know about your adventures with it.
The supreme slider is worth EVERY penny. Www.freemotionslider.com
P.s. I had to improvise on the back because I didn't have enough fabric, but I love it!


  1. I get a rush when I finish the quilt top- finally seeing what it will really look like! I love love love your solution on the back. That might be just what I'm looking for something I'm doing.

  2. I LOVE the back, great job!! My favorite is finishing the piecing and starting the actual quilting :) but I absolutely HATE binding! Which is funny, because I love hand embroidery Nd quilting, but I detest hand binding. I gotta figure out how to machine bind....

    Anyway, it all looks fabulous, as per the norm :)
