A Thank You, A Surprise, & An Almost-Finished Valentine’s Quilt

First, a big Thank You to Kelli from Small Town Stitcher for sending me all this awesome fabric (& some quilty magazines/books, which are not pictured). As soon as I finish up a few more projects, I’ll be making a few more baby quilts out of these 🙂

Second, remember how I was all whiny about how I didn’t have a walking foot for my machine? Well, Tuesday after the meeting, The Husband says, Can I go play with my friends? & I was all like sure , go. I’ll be here working on this (you’ll see in a minute). Tricky man. He actually went all the way to Jo-Ann’s & got me this:

Yup, a brand-new walking foot 🙂 Isn’t he awesome?

This is what I’ve been working on:

Kitten wanted a Valentine quilt. It’s almost done but for the binding. It isn’t perfect, & you know what? It’s not bothering me near as much as you’d think 🙂 It’s all poofy, floofy awesomeness & it’s not that bad for my first large machine-quilted quilt.

Hopefully I’ll have the binding done in time for bedtime tonight.
