a little finish

Before I left on holidays I finished quilting my Harmony top.  I think I like to handquilt larger projects because they fit in my hoop better. (Maybe I just need more practice.)
 The binding had to wait until I got home.  I chose this rust print because the reds looked too bright and none of the browns were quite right either.
It still is quite puffy but it's growing on me.  :0)

The kids are all either away at camp or at day camp this week.  I have lots of sewing planned!
Happy Quilting!!

Beautiful finish.
I have a piece of pre-quilted fabric that makes a half hoop to of my hoop. I use it to pin the edge of little projects to. I also use it for the edges of big quilts.
Your quilt looks great!

That looks really nice. I am glad it is growing on you, it would be a shame to tuck it away somewhere...

I love the final result. All the colors complement each other wonderfully. It reminds me of a somewhat cowboy theme. Thank you for sharing.
