Another finish.

I gave my mother-in-law this redwork kit and some white fabric and she got busy. About a week or so ago she brought me all the squares because I told her I'd put it together for her. With the help of my friend Janice who helped me piece at Party Party Party last week, I got the top done by Thanksgiving.

I finished quilting it last night and the binding this morning. I had just practiced the swirl in the sashing thru the November Free Motion Quilting challenge. It was the perfect design for this piece.

I spent the rest of the afternoon cutting up my scrap basket into the 5, 3.5 and 2 inch squares for Scrap Therapy. The first picture was taken on Friday afternoon. The second one just minutes ago.

 

My neck and back are aching but I have one more quilt to start machine quilting. So I better get busy.

Thanks for looking.

You busy little gal! I like that there is a variety of red fabrics in the sashing. Much more dimensional and interesting that way. Your quilting, as always, is great.

How beautiful and skillfully done. Barbara, you are a true artisan. I love your work and truthfully speaking I'm envious (in a positive way).

Blessings…Diana
