Flagstone Quilt Done!

DD and I just got back from our weekend away. We went to the Holidome in Fond du Lac for some relaxing time. They have a great pool and hot tub. I had a gift certificate for a free night. We really enjoy being pampered in the middle of the cold, dark winter.

While DD was sleeping in this morning, I finished sewing the binding on my flagstone quilt. Its done! Ta-da! Here's a couple of pix.

Saturday we ran a bunch of errands before heading to FDL. One of those errands was to drop off the quilt top for a Trip Around the World that I finished back before Thanksgiving to the woman who will machine quilt it. The quilt is queen-sized and one of the few full bed sized quilts I've ever done. I've done lots of baby quilts, several wall hanging or lap quilts, but I think this is only the 3rd full size bed quilt I've ever finished. I didn't have any pix before I took it over there, so I shot a few of it draped over the quilting frame while we were discussing the various options.

I know it looks a little funny at this angle all bent like that, but there wasn't room to take a bigger picture.

Well, I need to start a baby quilt. I have a baby shower for a woman at work in two weeks so I'd better get cracking. I think I'm going to try the Whirlygiggle (windmill) pattern that everyone is talking about. I have a bunch of Moda's Butterfly Fling that I bought last fall that will be perfect.

Have a good week everyone!
