Quilt Update!

I missed my deadline on getting my quilt done!  I wanted to finish it before I went out of town, I stayed up until 2 AM quilting it before I left, but was too tired to finish it.  I'll finish it Tuesday, when I go to my friend's house.
I finished the top and most of the quilting.  The binding is ironed and ready to put on also.  Of course, Pippi was a big help!  While piecing the blocks together;

 And even while quilting!
I decided she needed her own blanket so I could finish the quilting!
I did straight stitching on the border, and cross hatched the blocks.  I stitched in the ditch on the sashing.

 I love the quilting guide that came with my machine!
 Here's a good picture of the cross hatch.

I did all this on my small Janome.  I like to scrunch up the extra material to the side.
This is only my second full-size quilt to "quilt", so I am doing simple quilting and there are a lot of mistakes!
Hopefully I will show the finished quilt later, although I can't show you the label until I give it to it's recipient!  To see other posts on my quilt look under the label for the Dresdan plate quilt on the left.
Happy Quilting!
