Housewarming Gift

No sewing for a week. I had to take my sewing machine in for servicing. I accidentally sewed through my cutting mat. Now I have a pinhole in my mat. Oh well, my sewing machine was due for servicing anyway. It hasn't been in for over two years, I think. I'm glad it will only take a week. Maybe I can get my scraps under control. They're a mess.

I also have a picture of the quilt I sent to my brother and his wife for their house warming gift. It is the Japanese Buzzsaw Quilt I started over a year ago. Barbara  did a beautiful job of quilting it, as always. This is my second quilt.

Here is a picture of the front and the back. I had to piece the back because I didn't have enough fabric for the back. Luckily, I had enough leftover fabric from the front of the quilt. I love how it turned out. I wanted to keep it, but knowing that I loved it, I knew they would love it too. I did tell them that if they didn't like it, they could send it back to me, (heh, heh) but no such luck luckily, they loved it. That makes me happy. Now to start on another one...hopefully, this next one will be for me.

Thanks Kat, a week is fast. There was a time when the wait was three months!

Oh what a great gift.......of course they loved it...who wouldn't!
Really only your second quilt?
You did a great job.......are you totally hooked on quilting now?
I never seem to get enough of making them, reading about them and looking at all the quilters work online!

Happy Sewing

Thanks Kim...really, it's only my second completed quilt, and yes I am hooked on quilting now. I have a turning twenty in progress and the Carolina Christmas that I am still cutting strips for...and not enough time to sew. Thanks for stopping by.
