This is what I began with: two of three strips of the top pinned together, ready to sew, with the third strip still waiting, hanging over the chair. This is the Vintage Rose pattern by Debbie Mumm, which I'm making for a gift.
After spending three hours sewing, the top is finally finished! It felt SO good to finally get this top done! I love the borders. And I'm surprised at how big it turned out. I thought it was more of a wall-hanging size, but it's actually a lap quilt. Now I just have to practice some free-motion quilting. Any suggestions on what quilting patterns to use? All I've ever done are straight lines, in-the-ditch, and some very limited following of traced lines with my walking foot. I haven't ventured into FMQ yet, although it's something I've been talking about for
