Quilt QUILTED!! wooo hoooo!!!

I would post a photo but I am tooooooooo tired!!! I just wanted to drop a quick line here to say the quilt is now quilted and hope to get it ready for binding tomorrow evening!!!! I would have done it tonight but well Masterpiece Theatre was on and the last part of a 4 part series was on. I'm not a tv person, but I do love the PBS Sunday evening Masterpiece Theatre!!!

Another reason for such a quick note is that it is already 12:15am Monday morning and I need to get a little bit of sleep before my alarm clock wakes me at 4:30am!! UGHHH!! I have to take Mum to the hospital tomorrow morning as she is going in for a day surgery to get work done on her foot. Nothing too serious. She has a really bad bunion and it has been hurting her for a number of years. She is unable to wear some of her nice summer sandels. It took almost 5 years on the wait list to get this surgery done!! I told her she should take in a pair of sandels she hasn't been able to wear yet into the operating room as a little incentive for the post surgery results LOL!!! Her surgery is for 8am, however they want her there for 6:30 for the pre-op stuff. I have to be there as proof that she has someone to drive her home and take care of her for the next 24 hours. If I'm not there they will cancel the surgery.

After I get home from the hospital and I get a little shut eye myself, I will post again. Perhaps I'll wait until the evening to show the final results with the binding on the quilt too!!

Thanks so much for all the wonderful comments and the cheering me on! As for the free motion design I did, it is a template that I used. I will take a photo of the book, err I mean free motion design template package in my next post. I got them for Christmas!!!!

Quiltingly Yours
