October goals accomplished
It's certainly easy to meet goals when they are not very challenging. With my breast cancer walk this coming weekend and my son's wedding the following weekend my only two quilting goals for October were to finish my donation quilt for Quilt Pink and this quilt for myself.
I put the final stitches in the binding this afternoon so I'm all done! It's nice and toasty with a flannel back and it will go up to Minneapolis for use in our temporary apartment in November.
I've got the movers coming on October 30 to see how much stuff they'll have to pack - I need to finish culling through my studio so they'll be able to accurately assess packing materials and cost. So as much as I'd like to load another quilt I'll hold off until after the 30th.
I like being able to hang my quilts up to take the pictures but notice that sometimes they don't always hang completely straight using the clips on the curtain rod. This one looks a little wavy but it's the way it's hanging not the quilt which squared up nicely before binding.
Although my layout and borders are different from Bonnie's pattern, the blocks and inspiration came from her Pineapple Blossom quilt.
