OMG Achieved!!

I can't believe how good it feels to accomplish my goal.  OMG stands for One Monthly Goal.  At the beginning of the month, I set a goal to finish quilting a gift quilt for my friend.  You can read about it here.  I started to work on it right away and little by little, I got it done.  I sure learned a lot from this project.  It's a lot of sewing and resewing but it's only in a certain area of the quilt.  I used 50wt. Aurifil thread #2311 for both piecing and quilting.  

Here are the pictures; front and back.

 Here are some detail pictures.

The rectangle area above is about 5 1/2" x 6 1/2" big but it took me almost 2 days to quilt it as seen in the picture.  Of course I took several long breaks in between to recompose myself.  Some days, it seems, I can't sew straight lines.  Sigh.....

Now what remains is binding/facing; I'm not sure yet which way I want to finish it.

The vanilla extract is coming along nicely and it smells so good..... If you don't know I made vanilla extract, you can read about it here

Have a great time sewing everyone!!
