Time for quilting and bindings

Here's "Memories of an Art Teacher" in the finishing stages.

My Viking machine is what I use when I machine quilt myself. This quilt turned out to be about twin size, larger than I usually tackle on my machine. I wanted to customize the quilting and didn't want to pay for it, so . . . I roll and fold, pull and shove, and continue to sew until my shoulders burn. I'm now hand tacking the binding and will be ready to share soon.

My goal is to fill the quilt with concentrated stitching. There is still more to do after this picture. I stitched in the ditch for the sashing and inside each square I followed the pattern of the t-shirt, some being straight and other areas required free motion.
