more quilting practice. i'm proud of how well i matched up my corners within a block and cut everything to size correctly, but my thread tension still needs some work to get it right, get it perfect, top & bottom. and binding, i really need to learn how to do a pretty binding. it can't all be an envelope edge!

next up...matching coasters (tee requested BIG) and single blocks for the end tables, unless i get back on the gifts for giving. uhm.

This is pretty. I like the colors of it. If you go to Crazy Mom Quilts blog, she has a tutorial on bindings. It's really very easy once you get started.
