Desert Stitchin. The original plan was to machine quilt it but I ended up finishing the top at my mom's and didn't have time to quilt it before I left for my dad's, so I got the bright idea that I would try and hand quilt the whole thing while I was in AZ (for all of 4 days). I'm really not sure what I was thinking. It obviously didn't get finished but since I started hand quilting it, I've got to finish it by hand. Can you tell I have a bit of a problem figure out just how long projects will take? I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I can finish the quilting in the next week or so. Time to get back to work. Check out the other design walls on Judy's blog. And if you're ever in the Nashville area, check out The Stitcher's Garden (209 S Royal Oaks Blvd. Ste. 223, Franklin, TN 37064). They have just about every kind of fabric you can think of and tons of fat quarters. I had to behave myself in there since I had limited room in my suitcase, but I don't make any promises for next time. The place is truly amazing. And if you're around Phoenix, check out In Stitches!(2403 N PebbleCreek #109 Goodyear, Az) The store's not very big but they have a nice selection and the owner was really friendly even though I popped in less than 15 minutes before closing time.
