Friday Finish

I'm so happy to be able to share a finish with you this Friday! I've had the quilt top made for a while and finished the quilting right before my knee replacement surgery. One day last week, I got brave and went upstairs to apply the binding. Going up was great, coming down was more challenging.  :)

My husband Mike has a friend that has been there for him for years, always helping out with any project -- including making new doors for our kitchen cabinets and a custom cutting table for me that holds bolts of fabric and is the perfect size!

I knew that he needed a grand gesture as a thank you, and this quilt is it! I can't wait to see his face when it gets delivered.


This is Sue Garman's Washington Medallion quilt pattern. I joined a Block of the Month years ago from Stitchin' Heaven quilt shop and worked on this blue and brown beauty for years.
