No time to POST!

It seems that time is literally flying by.  There is not enough time for cleaning (up after 4 keiki's), not enough to accomplish all I want to with my 3 year old, little time for scrapbooking and little time for quilting.  Where does it all go?  That's a question I wish I could answer.

Today I have finished quilting my first machine quilting quilt.  This one is only stripes done with a walking foot.  The next quilt I'll try something more fun, but this one I needed simple.  I also got the bindin sewn on but not without a fun mistake.  

Notice anything funny about the binding I'm sewing on in the picture?

We'll, the quilt is pink/white/green and the binding is BLUE.  The colors go great together, but they just don't match this quilt.  So after some seem ripping, here is what I put away when I am going to bed... And started blogging.
I am hand stitching the binding on and so while watching NCIS tonight I was able to get 3 of the 4 sides seen on.  Tomorrow night I'm really hoping this WIP becomes a finished project!

The blue binding is lovely but I think the green binding sets the quilt off nicely!

Congratulations with completing your first machine quilted quilts. The green binding looks perfect with the pink fabric. I always did like pink and green together.
