Life is beautiful


Here are some pics of my life is beautiful quilt. Ready for binding. But you know that will have to wait till Quiltober is over!





 I am really happy with the quilting. It finishes it off nicely.




this is the quilting design. The open spaces are where the circles are appliqued on.

Had a great catch up on my quilting last night. I can't believe I am down to the last 20 or so. One thing I did forget was the borders and quilting around the butterflies hopefully they will quilt quickly. So close now I can count how many are left.. Somewhere along the line I have miss counted how many I had done and the completed number is more than I thought.
 Lots to Happy dance about!!

20 flowers to go- 84 completed
4 leaves to go- 27 completed


Have a great weekend!

ps. and it's ok my quilting arm doesn't look like this now!
