January UFO - #6

I finished my UFO for January tonight. Winter Pines is the pattern by Kay Capps Cross and I only made 9 of these trees, well, actually 10 of them and the other will become a pillow, or something.



I quilted it today using Square Spiral by Keryn Emmerson, Eggshell Permacore thread and Hobbs 80/20 batting.



I stitched the binding on the machine this time. I intended to do it by hand, but Dan was watching something on TV that I didn't want to watch, so I shut the door to my sewing room and emerged later with a finished quilt.

Congratulations on finishing a UFO. I have tried binding on the machine but it always shifts and looks awful. Yours looks great and now you have a finished quilt for next Christmas!

Wow -- great job on that bindng! I have to stick to the hand sewing -- I can never get such a neat job on my machine.

Congrats on your finish. I love this quilt. I'm still torn about putting a border on my #6 finish. I think if it wasn't so old and my style hadn't changed as much as it had I wouldn't be so indecisive. Check it out Ruthie, I would love your feedback.
By the way, your quilting is fabulous!
Cheers,
Dionne
