Did I ever leave the house?

I really don't think I did leave the house over the weekend, except to pick up dinner on Saturday night! I spent most of it quilting. I finished the top of this quilt and prepared the backing on Friday night...

I loaded it on the machine and quilted half on Saturday...


And finished the quilting, then sat up until almost midnight to finish the binding on Sunday night. Today it was washed, folded and beribboned and is now on its way to my son's girlfriend who is moving into her new house near the Drexel campus this afternoon. I hope she likes it! The colors are the most true in this picture, they were very hard to photograph because of the low contrast.

I just heard that she loves it and now plans to decorate her room in these colors...and that just made my day!

Now to figure out what to make next....
