Almost finished!!


I spent four hours yesterday finishing up my HMQS Adornit Challenge quilt. 

I am loving it!


I wasn't sure about the random background fill that I quilted in the squares while I still had it rolled up.  


In fact, I was feeling a little panicky about it.  Also the simple double diamonds.  I was worried about how it would all work together, but I think it turned out looking really nice.  And I love it!


I can't wait to get the binding on, which is my scheduled project for tomorrow morning, as soon as I can get my kids off to school!

So, my good news from my last post that I promised....

I'm getting a longarm!  I'm so so excited!  I've been wanting to start a quilting business for a long time, and we've finally decided that it's the right time for me to do that.  I can't wait.  It should be here next week. 

More on all of that soon!

I could tell from your last post that this was going to be stunning. It is lovely , I would be as proud as punch of it. A long arm, how marvelous, I have thought about it but I know that I do not have the room for one. I wish you all the luck and joy with yours.
