quilting, quilting, scrubs, quilting

Managing bulk is not always fun, but so far, I am absolutely loving my quilt. And the best part is I'm actually going to get to keep it! Yay!

Check out the back! I love the hot pink, even though I'm usually not a pink person. The brushed cotton is great because it's soft like flannel but not as thick, and I do enjoy the pieced strip about 2/3 of the way up. It's my first (very small) attempt at improvisational piecing.

I'd really like to have it all finished by the end of the weekend, but it looks like it's shaping up to be a pretty busy one, so maybe the end of next weekend is a more reasonable goal. I have trouble quilting for too long, partially because I get distracted by Scrubs on the tv, and partially because it hurts my wrists, but I make a goal to finish a whole bobbin every time I sit down and so far it's working. I figure two more bobbins and I can move onto the binding!
