A finish

I've spent pretty much every spare minute of the past week working on my new bed quilt.  I used up 42 of the blocks I pieced recently.  I love the way it turned out.  I've never done cornerstones before and I haven't used prairie points in awhile.  I quilted it using a Quilt As You Go method with stipple and stitch in the ditch.  Quick finish.

You're not going to believe it but I've only pieced one block for the 501 Project since my last post.

But I have been busy and having so much fun.  I've started AND finished a project.  But I can't show you until September.

I will give you a little peek though.  Be sure to come back to see the 'whole' thing.

It feels good to finish a project.  Now I feel more like a quilter than just a piecer.

Hope you have a good day.

I'm headed out to camp in the morning.  No sewing for a few days.  Hello Kindle.

Hope you have a great weekend.
