This is a HeartStrings top pieced by the St. Mary's quilters in CT and it will go back to them for binding. I'm not completely happy with my decision to freehand quilt leaves over this quilt - it was very difficult to see my quilting and therefore I fretted the entire time over my spacing. Also, it would have been better if I'd stitched the border separately but it's done and it's not too bad.
Of course, the backing would show every little detail of the quilting but luckily my spacing wasn't as bad as I feared.
I'm halfway to my goal of 10 quilts by the end of August but don't be too impressed - most of them aren't that large and they're getting either freehand overalls or pantographs but it sure feels good to be getting these done.
