You can also get a look at the candy cane stripe on the inner border. The stripes aren't consistent or perfectly spaced, but they look okay to me. In the image below, all of the different quilting motifs can be seen.
This quilting journey began on December 7th, and with a few days off, I've worked on it almost full time for nearly two weeks. To say I'm glad to have it finished is an understatement.
If yesterday was nothing but quilting, today will be nothing but binding. That probably won't take all day, and so I want to get a string block made for the Block Lotto today as well.
It was a lovely day yesterday. The sun came out and the snow sparkled...just like the metallic thread in the quilt.
It's always a good day when the mountains are visible. The temperatures were supposed to warm up over night, but when I checked this morning, we were still at 30°F. The snow outside hasn't budged. Today's forecast has things warming up, however. If the warm rain arrives as scheduled, the snow should be gone by this evening.
Aside from sewing, I want to get my grocery shopping list made up for a trip to the grocery store tomorrow. I've ordered a prime rib roast for our family dinner on Saturday, and so I need to pick that up along with the rest of the food for the roast beast feast. A little housework, and my day will be complete.
