One More for the Binding Stack

Just pulled Christmas Lights off the frame. I meant to keep track of how long it took to do the actual quilting part. It's hard to say with all of the starting and stopping for life and such. Each quilt gets a little better and a little easier. It was a lot of fun to see the stitching coming together.
I like the way it looks when the yellow hits the yellow and all you can see is a little bit of poufiness.

It was a pieced back, and the quilting really shows up on the black. Now that I look at it in the picture I can see all the mistakes. I'll turn it back over and admire the front some more. It's only 11:14 so I'll go and get an early night tonight. It won't quite make up for the wee hours from last night, but it will sure feel good.

What a pretty quilt, I love the design and the colours. I wish I could stay up that late and call 11.15 an early night!

Looks great to me!
I think people give up on too early all the forms of quilting when they don't get a great result right away. They don't realize how many hours of practise you need to put in to improve. Each quilt you learn a little more and before you know it, you'll impress yourself!

Good job! Like Kathy said, you'll impress yourself! And don't be afraid to admit it to us because we are already impressed with you. ;) I really like that design.
