Olympic Rings Quilt Finished!
The Winter Olympics was exactly what I needed to motivate me to finish the quilt that I started 2 years ago, during the Summer Olympics. I stitched on the binding this morning, just as the last of the snow is melting. It's 54" by 72"... the perfect size for snuggling under while we watch the Olympics on TV.
The back is simple, just some coordinating solids I had.
I hope you are enjoying the Olympics as much as I am. Call me crazy, but my favorite events are the Half Pipe Snowboarding events, as well as the Mogul Skiing. I find them mesmerizing. I think my own background in gymnastics is what makes them appeal to me, as they have so many wonderful flips and twists. What's your favorite event of the Winter Olympics?
Another totally off topic question I have is what camera do you use? My point and shoot has bit the dust, and my son's who I've been using (same model, a Cannon Powershot), is following suit. I took all of these with my ipad mini. It's OK, but not great. I really want to save up and get a nice one next. Thanks for any advice!
