SA-weet Success~

OH, I'm so relieved!
I redid the whole thing and I'm very glad.
Grandma Jo would be proud.
Turned out better than I thought.
I used my trusty and highly coveted Warm & Natural Batting and then did a little free motion quilting.
I added binding, which I was trying to get out of doing. Shame on me. It adds a little something extra. I finished the binding off with the machine while I sewed on the Ric Rac at the same time.
I love that it's usable on either side.
I gave it to my girlfriend for her birthday today and it looks awesome on her dining table.
Whew~ that was a close one.

  3. Love that but have a question. Did you just sew those stars in wherever or did you have a pattern? Love that look.
