Journey Of A Quilt : The Finish

I recently decided to re-enter

the workforce on a part time basis.

The decision was purely to satisfy my need

to be around people

(other than my Little Person everyday).

Once I made the decision,

I had a job offer within two days

and I started work immediately!

So with that being said,

now I truly cherish EVERY moment that I get to spend

in front of my sewing machine!

I  finally sat down and finished sewing on the

binding of my SNIPPETS quilt.

Here is what my latest creation looks like:

I love how the 1 inch strips breaks up the design.

I used Fig Tree fabric for the backing.

When I made this quilt, I wasn't sure what

I was going to do with it.

However, the other day I laid it down on top

of my sewing machine

and it looked pretty good.

So, I think that I will add some ties to

the sides of it

and turn it into a sewing machine cover.

(I'll let you know how it turns out!)
