Making Progress

I've been working pretty hard to get this quilt finished up for the Blogger's Quilt Festival later this week.  A week ago, I signed myself up for Amy's One Thing, One Week Challenge with the goal of finishing the borders on the quilt and getting the quilt sandwich together.

And I made my goal!  Not only did I get the layers together, but last night I was able to finish the quilting and am already working on the binding.  I am pretty excited!


I took this next one while I was working on the quilting...


I think that's enough peeking for now.  I've got to get back to quilting and paper writing!

From what I can see, that quilt is a masterpiece! I also like the quote in your blog header - I have to remember to tell myself that when I try new things.
