Ready to be pinned

Last weekend I snuck in half a morning of sewing and got the border on my Kim Diehl wall hanging Bittersweet Briar.  While machine applique is quick, but I don't know that I would call it fun.   Having said that I needed quick, so I am very please to have a finished top.
Now I just need to squeeze in some quilting time and it will nearly be ready to hang on the wall.  I am going to try my hand at FMQ this very heavily, fingers crossed it works!
Happy quilting, Sue SA.


  1. Beautiful and I know you will do a great job... shoulders relaxed, loud music, a glass of wine perhaps and enjoy....


  2. It looks great. Good luck with the quilting.

  3. Good luck on your machine quilting! I love the circles in the border on this quilt - very fun!

  4. It's lovely Sue. Machine applique is great for those fast finishes. This is going to be a stunner for sure !

  5. All appendages crossed for you. It is looking good.

  6. give me machine applique over hand any day and i am sure the quilting will be great, have fun and relax.
