Ready to Quilt

The little nine patch is now ready to quilt. I just had to lay it on the table and pin the side to see what it will look like with binding. Its unpinned and in a hoop frame now and the quilting has begun. I am very anxious to get my new Grace Quilting Frame together but decided to stain the wood first so its still drying. I decided not to get the lamps that go with the Frame as the cost was climbing with each accessory. The day after the quilt frame arrived, my husband and I were at the Goodwill Store and sure enough, there were two brand new lamps for $10, the exact same as what is sold with the frame. Now I have lights for each end of the frame. I feel so blessed, as if the Good Lord provided this small item just for me.
Now I just need to choose which design to use for the quilting on the blue sashing. After laying out all my templates I realized there are not many options in my collection. Might have to make something up.
