I've been living in Georgia for over four years now. I still have quilt tops or quilt fabric or quilt kits I purchased in Milwaukee that I have to either start, finish or have quilted and complete. It's a little overwhelming considering I am still quilting like a maniac.
One of the quilts tops I actually finished in Milwaukee is what I call my egg quilt. I believe the fabric is from Three Sisters aviary fabric line.
The fabric is soft and girly. I loved the "egg" fabric. It is all bird's eggs with the names of the bird printed underneath. According to pictures of the quilt top, I was making it in 2009.
I decided I needed to get my quilt tops quilted. Taking them in to have them professionally quilted in chronological order seemed like a reasonable way to do it. However, gifts come up and other projects I want done first, so this idea didn't always work.
But I finally took the egg quilt to The Quilt Shop on Main to have Karen work her magic on it.
I love the finished quilt. It makes me laugh, though. I was a "newbie" quilter when making this quilt. I loved it, but wanted it longer. So, I just kept adding borders!

think I got a little carried away!
Four borders later I felt the quilt was long enough! And, it is a good queen sized quilt.
Now that it was quilted, I could not remember if I had purchased fabric to bind it with. I dug around in my stash and really didn't think I had anything. However, while downloading pictures for this blog, I found this picture.
Guess I found my binding fabric! And, I think I know right where it is!
I also love the backing fabric which was picked out at the The Quilt Shop on Main. I think it is pretty and has birds in it! You can see the beautiful quilting job.
Quilt tops are slowly getting done, but now I see another problem arising. How will I ever get the binding done on all of these quilts? LOL
