|Fly Away Home|
I had it all nice and smooth on the floor at my Mom's to take this picture, but Prudence and Fergie were running back and forth-- Prudence knows to stay off my quilts, but Ferguson thinks they're for her. So this is immediately after shooing her off.
I decided on the name for it when I was about 2/3 done with the quilting.... Tim called, and told me that he had just spoken to our realtor and everything is back on track for us to get the house!!! Because of the slight side track last week, we won't close now until November, but I'm ok with that-- we're getting the house! So a BIG THANK YOU and HUGS GALORE to all of you who were sending positive thoughts and prayers our way!!!
That's why it's called "Fly Away Home." Flying geese + our first Home.
The other thing about this quilt that I'm so proud of is that I machine stitched the binding!!! I always put it on halfway by machine, but usually hand stitch it down the rest of the way... I've been a little intimidated to do it completely on my machine. But, since Clinton the Fashion Mate has a walking foot that works like a dream, I figured, Why Not? And it came out pretty darn good, I must say! And dang, it's a LOT faster! I think with practice and patience I could make it look really nice.
Because I'm in such an amazing mood right now, I'll reveal the third fat quarter for my planned giveaway...
