The quilting is done on Baby Steps!!
I did in the ditch in the center and did some big stitch quilting in the border. I wanted to go around that vine but the presser foot was scrapping some of the color off of the buttons. Since I am not a real hand quilting, I just had fun.
Too bad the quilting doesn't show but it really makes those center rows with the vine and buttons pop.
Here is a close up of the hand quilting.
I might do the inside of the vine also, just to give it a little more definition.
You have seen me mention the mini quilts I have been adding sleeves on the back. Here is one for August I just finished. I should do September's now also, since this one is so late getting done. Only four more to complete.
Yes I had a piece of the backing still available to make the sleeve.
This is the front I finished it in Aug of 2009.
Some of my quilting friends are in Show Low at
Quilting on the Rim, for a quilting retreat.
I went with them in 2012 but now that I have the girls I can't go. I wish them fun, relaxation and lots of good sewing. I know the food will be great and it will be cooler than here in Phoenix.
Well Happy Stitching!!
