12 in '12 -- a leaner, not a ringer

OK, it is another obscure sports reference! This time: horseshoes!

I am not going to have a finish this month. I have a nearly-finished -- ABB, All But Binding. And the binding is machine-stitched on, but not hand-sewn down. I didn't think that I would be done with the quilting, but that went super fast. I am chipping the rust off of my free-motion "skills" & am fairly pleased with the results. You can sure tell what I did first & what I did last -- my stitches are a bit more even, the movement a bit more fluid. And I bet the boo-boos will get lost after I wash & dry the quilt.


Sorry Amy, Liz & Saf. But the good news is that I will already have a finish -- in just a few days -- for next month!

The good folks hosting the 12 in '12 Challenge said I could include it as a June finish (well, one of them, Saf did & I took it & ran). It is done now, washed & crinkle-liscious from the dryer!

An ABB is good enough for me!! I like your squiggly binding on that quilt. I look forward yo some full quilt shots when it's finished.

Love the quilting - I've just got to get myself to try some of it - soon! Now I have a new acronym to add to my quilting vocabulary: ABB, how did I not know that one already.

IMHO it's a finish and you should link up! I think the link will be open for a week, too!

Glad you linked up!

Love your quilting. You must be very happy with that new machine. It seems to be earning its place of abode.
