Oh such a squeal

I am so in love with the last quilt I made. I can share photos yet. I will once the recipient has received it. There were a few bumps along the way. In the end I am very happy with the results. It helps that the quilt features one of my all time favorite characters "Betty Boop."
After I bought this fabric and had Christmas with my family I found more Betty Boop fabric.

There are so many things I learned along the way. Especially in the finishing. I stitched 1/2 the binding down then folded over and went around again. I very much like the results. Also on the quilting of it, I started in one corner and worked my way diagonally to the other. no puckers or anything. And and and...

On to the next one...

This coming weekend I will be taking my 1st ever class. Fun & Done! with my wonderful sister in law. I will be very sad when she moves back to Tulsa, as for now she is close enough for a weekend trip.
