takin' one for the team...

So the volleyball quilt project is complete... at least the part that I was responsible for.
Now it's ready for the girls from the team to all sign and then it'll be ready to gift to Coach Nancy. We're sure looking forward to it!
I thought I'd share a pic or two of the quilting process... specifically the moment when the quilt literally got stuck in my sewing machine while I was outline quilting the ball blocks.
Tight fit, isn't it?
Kind of makes me think of how I'd look in a pair of the shorty shorts the girls wear to their volleyball games. But that's another post altogether.

The quilt turned out very nicely, despite getting stuck... I'm sure the girls will be excited to sign a block... and the coach will have something concrete to prompt memories of a great season!

Such a cool gift and thanks for sharing the picture of the "stuck quilt" :) You inspire me to give machine quilting another try!
