Been a While.....

Well I know it has been a while since I have posted on my blog. The last I wrote I was starting to quilt the Antique Car quilt I have been working on over the summer. I had hoped to have it done long ago but...Well it took much longer than planned. I really took my time with the quilting as it was the first time I actually have quilted a quilt with the exception of the Sun Bonnet Sue which was done only with "stitch in the ditch".

I had a few health issues over the summer that held me up quite a bit on my sewing but that is all behind me and I completed the quilting and the binding. Monday I made a quilt label and hope to put that on the quilt today and the Antique Car quilt will be done.

I am going to create a tab for this quilt in the right hand column of my blog. I hope you will take the time to click on over to the page for this quilt and check out the photos of the completed quilt.

I am so glad I decided to quilt it myself although I was extremely nerveous to begin with. I was afraid to start because of my lack of experience and did not want to ruin all my work. It turned out well and I learned alot and have alot more confidence now. I am still not ready to stipple but there will come a day when I will conquer that fear and perfect that technique.

Not sure what my next project will be yet but for now will publish a page for the Antique Car quilt....don't forget to check it out.
