Progress

 Hello everyone,

I've been quilting along on my friends baby quilt. Aren't these monkeys adorable??



 I was having a hard time on my electric machine. I'm not sure why. Maybe the tension wasn't right, although I did mess with it some. Maybe I am just used to my treadle, or maybe it's because with my treadle, I can control the speed better.

Whatever the reason, I switched to my treadle and was able to finish the quilting without a problem.
It's not the best work, but it's not too bad either. I'm hoping once I wash it, it will look better :)

Here's the back of part of it.


 I just have to finish putting the darling binding on (I'm using a zigzag fabric, soooo cute!) and then I'll be done. Just in time too, I want to get it washed and sent across the states to my friend in time for the baby shower.

Will show finished pictures soon!

Have a great day.
PS, don't forget to drop me a comment and leave me your name, if you're a wantobe quilter! LOTS of prizes you could win over at the Stash, come August.
