my NEW ENGLAND quilt! July 9, 2010

Filed under: Alewives Virtual Turning Twenty Class,July 2010,Quilting,Sewing — The Threaded Nest @ 8:34 pm

After many enjoyable hours spent in front of the television (really when do I ever get to do that?)

I was able to FINALLY finish hand stitching the binding on my New England inspired quilt!

I love LOVE love how the quilting looks after I washed it…

and how soft the Echino fabrics are now!

And how this quilt brightens my otherwise neutral toned room!

And I especially love how HAPPY it makes me to snuggle up under it

even though its wicked hot out right now ;0)

(Note to self: finish bedroom quilt in the Fall or Winter next time!)

Happy Friday,

Colette
