A lovely visit with family and some stitching...

My niece recruited a new quilter...her MIL.
Beth Ann finished piecing her first quilt and
I was sEw happy to turn Lizzy on and quilt it for her.
A little birdie told me Beth Ann was thrilled with the quilting.
I quilted it with swirls and butterflies...
I wish I had a picture of the finished quilt to post but  
I was still stitching the binding on as 
my sister and niece were loading up the car to head home.
They were in Michigan for spring break...it was a lovely 4 days!!!
As always the time went way too fast.
I didn't get the last side of the binding hand stitched down...
hopefully Beth Ann enjoys stitching the last of the binding down 
as much as I do.
It is my favorite part of making a quilt.

I'm still working on my One Monthly Goal for March.  
I still have a week to get it finished...
it will be a busy week but it is do-able!!

I started with some
Riley Blake large gingham fabric I quilted a few years ago
and I'll

this Aunt Martha's embroidery design...pattern # 3960 
and hopefully it will

a new ironing board cover!!!
Fingers crossed it will work out.

Looks like it will be a great ironing board cover. Maybe too pretty to use ;) Glad you got another quilter started.

Don't you just love it when someone starts quilting and you see the pleasure from their first quilt? Love the pattern you chose for the quilting.
