The Ugly Sweater Saga Continues

I finished the quilting yesterday and I think it turned out pretty well. :) By the time I took it off the frame I was too tired to trim it so I will do that today. I didn't want to tempt fate and have a preventable rotary cutter accident. ;)

I will also prepare and attach the binding by machine to front of the quilt today but I won't start hand stitching it down until I finish with the binding of this quilt.

I have been spending some of my evenings snuggled under this quilt while relaxing with some hand stitching. Progress is being made and I think I am more than half way finished.

I won't be going to my exercise classes this week so last night I planned to get on my treadmill but that did not happen. Instead I spent some down time in my sewing room tidying up scraps. It does not take long for them to take over my space.

I see you are moving right along! You know...I've never trimmed a quilt with a rotary cutter. I always use scissors. I'm thinking I would probably always have rotary cutting accidents if I tried that method. I run over my rulers with my rotary cutter!

Oh my gosh! It is done! Congratulations Ellen! A few more evening sewing down the binding and your goal is accomplished. Wow! ;^)
