Regency Quilt Completed

It seems as if many of the crafters whose blogs I read are completing projects.  I'm not sure what spurs others on.  I think I'm partly motivated by having a sense of committment to whatever made me begin the project in the first place.  Also, I feel a responsibility to follow through, being genetically frugal.  I bought the fabric so I need to do something with it.  Plus, I just get tired of seeing the damn thing hanging around.  It needs to be finished to be used so I finish it. 
 Thus, the Regency quilt was completed.

I can't tell you much unstitching I did when quilting the border.  I just couldn't get it right. 
It's far from perfect, but I'm fine with it. 
As I was working on it I thought that instead of hearts I could have appliqued flowers instead.  That would be pretty.

I recently had a couple of nice wins.  One was the Quilt Album software which I won during the SewCalGal Golden Quilter Award event.  I really look forward to getting the software and making a record of not only my quilts but crochet, sewing and cross stitch projects. 
I also won a $25.00 gift cerfiticate to AccuQuilt which I won during SewCalGal's AccuQuilt Blog Hop.

Oh, and I splurged on an AccuQuilt GO! 
Amazon has them at a very deep discount right now and I bought one.
Having the Sizzix showed me how nice it is to have a cutter for smaller things, and I loved what I saw during the blog hop.
I hope it proves to be everything the company says of it.

Hope you are getting things finished, too.

God Bless You.

That Regency quilt is beautiful, Joanna! I think that I prefer the hearts to flowers - although if you had used rich green fabric rather than rich red, they might have looked pretty.

Sounds like you had some pretty fine wins - I look forward to see what you get up to with your AccuQuilt.

You certainly did have couple of great wins. I look forward to seeing what you create with the new GO! Cutter - good for you for buying something for yourself.
