And another breakthrough!

It's finished. Yes, don't adjust your screen, you read that correctly! The Winnie The Pooh quilt is finally finished! Long time readers will know how I've struggled with this project, and now that it's done I really don't know why I had such mental struggles with it.

I guess maybe it was the series of mini-hurdles. Not enough navy fabric to finish the borders. The size of it daunted me with regard to machine quilting. Running out of bobbin thread, and then running out of top thread.

But it's all behind me now, I've finished it, and even Cameron is thrilled. I sewed the last binding stitches down last night watching the mens quarter finals in the Aust Open Tennis. Such a good game, I was enthralled.

Today Amy has a friend over for a play-date, and later we have to go pay for her school books and fees for the year. I don't know how much stitching I'll get done today, but I'm looking forward to doing more work on my USA Memories quilt. Have a wonderful day everyone!

Yeah! You did it - well done. I went to one of our better book stores today to look for the magazine that your pattern is in - came out empty handed. They couldn't even tell me whether they'd ordered it or not - useless I say, useless!

Well done Tazzie. 'Finished' is fantastic. Thanks for the email on the white fabric.

It looks great. I know if I had found that fabric I would have just made a traditional baby type quilt - but this one has real surprise. Wow!!!!

WTG! and job well done. :) I like how the colors of your triangles pick up the colors in the pooh blocks. :)

Oh, and my boss is interested in possibly getting some rolls of nickles from you... or 5 cent pieces, whatever you call them... lol

Do you have a paypal account? That way we could pay for the nickles and the newspaper and shipping all at once. ;)

I just love it... you have to feel so good about the completion. Did you long arm quilt it? Or you 'old faithful'?

Wow, that turned out so beautifully! Congrats on another job well done.

Good job! I just finished a similar project. Put off the final piece for a year because I thought it would be so hard and then when I got to it, I finished it right up!
