Finished Quilting



This morning we went to town and I was able to get more brown thread. This afternoon I finished quilting the Tippy quilt and now I only have to sew in the thread ends, which I already started, and put on the binding. I don't have enough dark brown for the binding so I guess I'll use the gold. I am not a big fan of contrasting binding. I like the looks of it but a lot of precision is required to make it look really good.
I have watched Sharon Schamber's Binding the Angel on Utube a few times and I am going to try her techniques. Wish me luck!

Lovely quilting! I also have watched that video many times. I bought my Elmer's school glue so I am going to give the technique a try too!

Amazing quilting. Hearts seem to be in at the moment don't they.

Any chance of you posting a pic of your red and white hearts which are beautiful?
