The Ta Dah Post...

At last...Ta Dah!...'Tis the Season...a finished, quilted, bound and labeled quilt!!!...


Finished this morning at local quilting group...happy dancing!...hand quilted in a chocolate brown perle 8 thread...much better than the aborted attempt at machine quilting, it really did not want to be machine quilted.  The 13th stitchery, the wreath, is on the back as the label.


On to the next stitch-a-long...My Some Kind of Wonderful book has been waiting since July and there are two bundles of fabrics  sitting with it vying for the lead fabric role, not quite sure yet which bundle will win out...it may be a combination of the two...but first...the secret stitching for this year's SCCS...I chose almost straight away when we were assigned our partners just what I am going to make and this morning I took a book out of the library at quilting group with inspiration to go along with that idea...now to make it happen...

Happy Stitching...
