A finish... well almost again

Well my beginners sample is all quilted I will try and get the binding done on the weekend.  I used bamboo wadding and a voile on the back and it has a lovely drape and is soft even with all the machine quilting so it will be a combination I will use again if it washes up ok.

Now all that needs to be done is write up the notes for my students.  I think that will take me a while but at least I have nearly 2 months to get them right now and I may even take the opportunity to make another sample.

Had a bit of a disaster with the appliqué quilt, cut 2 borders the wrong size but I managed to get my hands on just enough fabric to cut 2 new side borders so all is well.  Would have hated to have to design appliqué to cover a seam.  Apart from stitching down some stems the quilt has come to a stand still at the moment while the beginner sampler is finished.  It will be back on schedule next week though.

Beautiful quilt, I love the colors. I hate it when there are cutting errors during a project. Glad you were able to recover from yours.

It's beautiful Amanda. Your students are going to love putting this together under your tutelage.

I'm struggling to keep up at the moment where are you teaching?
