I have so much to post about so I might as well jump in. First of my sister in law, Pat, and I had a blast. She arrived on Friday afternoon and we got right to it. I had my sewing room already and her table setup. I worked on my first wall hanging that I want to hang in my entryway. All I have to do is the binding. I have decided since this is a wall hanging I am going to use my machine to sew the binding down. I had promised that I would from this point on I would only be hand sewing the binding down. Pat was the one that convinced me that I need to hand sew the binding. I figure it being a wall hanging no one will see the back. So here it is:

I really had fun making it. It is the very first thing that I have made just for me. I will make myself a quilt this winter.

This one I have posted before but this is the one that I am struggling to hand sew the binding. It is not coming easily.

This is one I made for a very close friend who moved from Minnesota to Phoenix. She was very excited about decorating her house in the southwest decorations. I wanted her to have something of me in her new home. I miss her dearly. The first picture is not the best of picture (to close up) but you get the idea.

Till Later

Isn't that the Sunny Daze Pattern? It's turned out lovely, just like the pattern. And I've been to Coon Rapids!
