    What is more satisfying than finishing a quilt?

    I started this about eight months ago, but Old Yeller is finally finished. On Saturday, I took my last stitch, held my breath as I gingerly placed her into the washer on the delicate cycle and a color catcher just in case. I crossed my fingers. When she came out of the dryer, she was positively hugable. It is hard to believe I won't have this quilt to work on in front of the TV.

    Here she is on my bed--and with a shot of the corner with the binding.

    I am already contemplating the next project. I can't wait to start.

    I don't know how I got pictures without cats. They must have been eating. :-)

    A very happy color and a great job, well done! I just finished a UFO quilt top over the weekend, and find myself going "what do I do now" as I am in the unique (for me) position of not having a deadline to finish something by...don't know quite how to deal with that one!

    Yellow is my favorite color so of course this is a beautiful quilt. There is always sadness and relief when I finish a quilt. And then of course excitement about the next project.

    Beautiful quilt, congrats on getting it done. I finish one and start another. While I am sewing the binding to the back by hand I start planning the next one. About all I do in my spare time and some of my home chore time too. I think I am may have a problem. I am working on my 108th quilt now. 82nd since I started machine quilting 10 years ago. Plus 16 comforters and 10 biscuit quilts.

    Thanks Susan. I have found that so many people are not like us--they don't like yellow. I suspect they don't know what they are missing. To wake up in the morning to pure sunshine is as good as it gets.
