work table : kindergarten quilt progress

Just a few days in Napa and we're already back home. We had some incredible meals and even managed some upscale restaurants with our six year old tagging along. I'll post some photos soon of our trip but in the meantime, I'm back at work wrapping up the Kindergarten quilt for my daughter's school auction. I'm working on the binding now but haven't been able to take any decent photos because of overcast skies this week. We might even have snow here in San Francisco but I'm not complaining! In the interim, here are photos as I sandwiched the pieces and  after I finished hand quilting.


In the works ...


I did the bare minimum of quilting to let the art speak for itself and well, frankly, I'm running out of time!


The binding is going well considering it's my first time. A few more hours and I'm finished! What is amazing is that my cat has not thrown up on the quilt ... he has this amazing habit of finding my artwork at the most inopportune times. Fingers crossed.

Oh my... That looks wonderful!!! Their artwork is so free and lively, I love it! And the way you r putting it all together looks perfect. Did you hand stitch every one's name??

This is wonderful! Several years ago I did 3 quilts with 3 different second grade classes and I know what a challenge it can be... yours is just the best, and the stitched signature is such a fabulous addition!

oh, you have a bulimic kitty too? there's no way i can keep the quilt i just finished on my bed, as she's too fond of throwing up. the vet and i can't figure out why, other than she just gobbles her food down too quick, and it expands. also, i could probably make another cat from the amount of fur stuck on the quilt, ah the joys of cats and textiles!

My Victoria, I can't imagine making three of these quilts at once, yikes! But I'm sure you're much faster than I!

Anastasia, I feel your pain! Our cat does the same, gulps down the food too fast. Really annoying, isn't it?
