college bound

School began yesterday for my little one.
Aaaah! Finally a quiet CHUNK of time
to quilt a quilt!

This is my friend's quilt top.
(made for a college bound niece).
She trusted ME to quilt it for her!!!

Yes. Miracles STILL do happen!
;)
It WAS a little scary to use my machine on HER quilt!

what if???
What if????

I kept telling myself to
SLOW down
and if all else fails...
I would just RIP OUT!

The pep talk worked!


Ripping out was NOT necessary!!!
Woo Hoo!!!

This quilt is NOW READY to move into
the freshmen dorms with my friend's niece!

Don't you like the way she perked up a simple quilt pattern
with the appliqued musical notes?
This one will be loved, I'm sure!

  4. What a wonderful quilt!! The FMQ looks wonderful. The loop meandering is quickly becoming one of my favorite to do. And those music notes on the front were the perfect addition! Congrats on a great finish :)

  11. Great quilt and the quilting design fits perfectly!

    LOL! One of the things I immediately loved about quilting was that I could always rip out!
