today i have not one, but two finishes to show you! i finally felt like i could handle the upper body movements that FMQ required, so last weekend i had M cut batting for me from the ginormo roll and help baste two quilts i'd had tops and backings ready for weeks.
on sunday afternoon, i was able to complete the quilting on both, then added the bindings later in the week. i also washed and dried both to see how they'd crinkle up.
here's the back of the quilt pictured above, plus a close up of the quilting (a loose meander on this one):
i'm taking this quilt to corpus this weekend as a gift for the mother of a close friend of my own mother.
here's the second finish:
this one will go into the charity quilt pile for the Houston Modern Quilt Guild.
i also have a THIRD quilt that just needs the binding handstitched to the back, but i guess you'll have to wait on photos of it until next week!
