Here is Micha's quilt nearly done. I have to quilt the wide pink border yet. I am also wondering if I need something in the yellow border. I'm not sure if it is too wide to not be quilted. It is about three inches wide. I guess I'll see how it looks when the pink border is done.
This next picture is of an old double wedding ring that I think my mother may have pieced in the thirties before she was married. I found it in a trunk at my Dad's and decided to try to finish it. I already hand quilted a fan quilt I found at the same time. I am not a big fan of hand quilting , especially on somthing this big. It's about 70 by 90 or more. Still, even if it takes a year, I have a quilting frame and the space to leave it set up so, here goes. Cherie and I spent a couple of hours basting it today but it's still not even half done. I can only work on the floor like that for half an hour before I get a really sore back so it may not even be basted that quickly. Lucky there is no rush!
