Sew and Tell, maybe?

I was SEW close to my Friday finish. I was determined that i would get it done. I have been working on it all day. Note to self, if you want to finish a whole quilting project....start before the day you plan to finish. Then there is a better chance of finishing. So ladies, can i count getting all the quilting done as my finish?
I sure hope so...i started basting this morning and had just enough spray baste to get it all done. Thank goodness. Avery declared that it would have been a disaster if i had run out! Then i had a marathon quilting day...all my free time has gone into getting this quilted. My back and my arms are killing me! But, best part of this project is that it is one i get to keep, for myself. I plan on having it in my living room to cozy up under on cool nights.Preferably with my warm hubby!

I hope that tomorrow i will have a updated picture to include a finished binding. I am loving sew and tell it is really keeping me motivated to get old projects done. Go on over to Amy's and see what everyone else got done this week. There is lots of great stuff.

That is AWESOME! I love the colors and how you've arranged them. Love the quilting too. And that last pic with you peeking over the top is just classic. :-)

I love your peeking eyes too. I love how you chose to quilt it - it really allows the fabrics to shine. And I think it should count as a "finish!"

Oooh...I was just looking at the daisy fabric online. I think your quilt is beautiful and love the idea of you getting to snuggle up with someone you love...and who loves you!

I wow, I REALLY love those colors! Can't wait to see the finished product! Hopefully you're not too sore to blog about it after your marathon quilting day!

I think I will call it your "rainbow" quilt. Not only are your eyes peeking out but so are a few of your tootsies! It really is beautiful Leslie!

Gorgeous! I love your color arrangement too - as well as that box quilting. So cute!

I think you can definitely call the quilting a finish. :) Thanks for joining in!!

I always over estimate how much I can get done!! LOL!! Of course that counts as a finish! Great job, and i can't wait to see it after it is bound!!

Blessings,

Love that fabric! And your quilted squares look so wonderfully even - I have such a hard time with nice, straight lines without puckers and wandering off.
