Its quilted!!

On Friday, I finished quilting this quilt - the Stacked Coin Quilt or as my DH says the 'BLAH' quilt:

It turned out ok, but, the designs I choose from my stylus didn't quite line up the way I had hoped it would. I chose the wave and the large half circle, it started off ok, but by the time I came to the other edge it was slightly 'out'! Nothing too major really, just me being a 'fuss pot'!!
So, today I will attach the binding (hopefully) ready for hand stitching during the week.
I have SO many projects on the go, last night while watching a video I stuffed 3 dolls. Not all the same........ I have a shop sample on the go, ready for the kits......... 2 quilts to bind...... another to be quilted...... and another to start!! And they are just off the top of my head!
On shop news, I am taking PRE-ORDERS for Gail Pan's new book Baskets In Bloom at a great price.... If you would like to pre-order yours, pop over here and secure it at this price before my stock arrives and the price goes up. We had a sneak peek at the Gathering in Evendale and I must say the projects are just GORGEOUS!! International customers, please email for a postage price.
I hope you all are enjoying your weekend
x Sarah

Wow - stacked coin quilt has been quilted, I'm still trying to work up the courage to do mine and can't decide how to do it - some straight lines or to practice my freestyle machine quilting. I really need to just jump in and do it - it's a gift for a baby, shoe's not going to be fussy!!

Well done - now I should just go and sit on my sewing machine and do some sewing to catch up to you!
