It seems I have been taking a little inadvertent blog break. It's not that I have been doing nothing. It's more that I've been doing a lot of the same thing, namely, quilting the Mod Sampler Quilt. I finally completed the quilting over the weekend and did the first stage of binding. Now I just need to do all the handstitching on that. Of course, I haven't finished the binding on my Stacked Coins Quilt yet either. Hopefully, I'll get some binding action going and have a finished quilt to share this week!
In addition to lots of quilting, we finally managed to get one of my quilts hung. Woo hoo! We've only lived in this house for 2.5 years now. I figured it was about time we finally get a quilt on the wall.
Yay for handy husbands! (Thank you, Keith!)
It is hanging on the landing between the first and second floors of the house. It's kind of tough to get a good picture.
I started this quilt as a block of the month back in 2001. It is a Maggie Walker design called My Cat's Garden. It is all machine appliqued using a satin stitch. It was a lot of satin stitching. I have a pretty awesome thread collection as a result. The quilt was completed in 2005. I kind of chickened-out on the quilting and just outlined all of the applique. I really wish I had done more. Despite that, I am crazy proud of this quilt and am so happy that it is finally hanging up where I can enjoy it every day.
