But I Triumphed!

 It was thundering out and raining (hooray because we need it so badly!) so the cats were all inside and Nyki chose to keep me company by laying on the quilt as I was sewing the binding on!
 I finished it and will toss it into the washer/dryer in the morning and see how it turns out!
 The backing doesn't reflect the pretty stitching on the front but the outline stitching will keep it all together!
 I sewed some border fabric I found in the stash and loaded it right up on the frame.  Of course, I had no problem loading the backing the right way!  I knew what to do for a design on this quilt top right away-I love it when that happens!
Flowers everywhere!


  1. Yay for the well deserved victory! Mind over material!!

  2. WaHoo! I'm thrilled that you found a solution. The "new" backing fabric is gorgeous, by the way.

  3. It's always good to have kitty help!

  4. Nyki looks beautiful on the quilt. Black cats are so difficult to photograph so nice job!

  5. So nice to have cat-supervision...even nicer that Nyki deigned to allow you to take pictures of her! Also nice to turn out beautiful quilts despite roadblocks!


Thanks for taking the time to let me know you stopped by to read my blog!
