Finishes 1.5


This quilt is finally fully finished! The body of this quilt seemed to take me a very long time to quilt.  I couldn't pick up speed with all those appliqued flowers all over the place! I outlined each flower and leaf but not every petal. I felt that was enough. It looks fine to me.

 
Here's a close up of my border quilting.  I tried to quilt a teardrop, echoed it twice and then echoed petals twice around that! It's so hard to see it since everything sort of blends so nicely. It gave the quilt a wonderful texture. I decided to bind the quilt with the same fabric I used for the backing.


Here's my half finish! One sock is done but one more to go!!I just love this yarn. It makes such great waves of color throughout the sock. Almost too nice for socks!!

Now I have to decide if I should knit the next sock or sew down the binding?? I think I'll finish up the binding. That sock will take awhile but I can probably get that binding done in a couple of days.
