I Almost Made It!


I am quilting this large quilt for a friend of a friend whose mother pieced it but passed away before she was able to finish it. I am just doing all-over loops on it with the odd heart sneaked in. I was this close to being done when I ran out of thread. I got some in town today so that will be the first order of business tomorrow. Then I have to cut and sew on the binding. Then there will be a couple of miles of hand stitching the binding down. It is a beautiful Christmassy quilt and it is beautifully pieced. I hope my quilting does it justice.
