Kelsey's birthday is in September. I gifted her a quilt last year for her birthday. Forward another birthday - she got pillows to go on that quilt to match. And now I can say the quilt top has been quilted.
I had hoped to machine quilt it myself. I even got a new Juki sewing machine for my birthday but was somewhat stymied as to what design to quilt.
While visiting Texas in August I went with Dru Ann to one of her favorite quilt shops, The Needle Niche in Athens, Texas. They have a couple that does long arm quilting for a very reasonable price and I decided that rather then make Kelsey wait probably another year that they would be the best option for getting her quilt finished.
And finished it is. I mailed the quilt top, washed quilt batting and fabric for the binding to Dru Ann to take it to the Needle Niche to get quilted. Letting go was hard but I knew it was the only thing I could do.
And here is the finished quilt in all it's finished glory.
I have signed myself up for another class to help me choose a quilt design for my quilt tops. There is more machine quilting in the horizon.
Thank you to Charles for the pictures!!
