Yay! I finished my Quirky Boxes Quilt and I'm thrilled with how it looks. I free-motioned a loopy design along the border (my first free-motion experience) and it looks so cute. Free motion is fun! the backing is out of a thrifted sheet and it must be high-quality because the fibers are so tight, I had a hard time getting a needle through it while hand sewing the binding. Speaking of getting needles through things, I actually sewed right through my finger while quilting this baby. I have never actually done that before, so I guess I was due. Oh, and speaking of quilting, I talked myself out of the hand quilting. I was afraid I would start and take a year to finish, which would have been a bummer. Maybe in a different stage of life, I will take up hand quilting and try out that big-stitch method.
