What a day I have had. Last night I ironed and pieced the back of the quilt. Today I sandwiched the quilt and pin basted getting it ready for FMQing on my Singer 301A. I set up the Singer for FMQ, but it does not like to doe FMQ. Which I think is odd because it worked so nice piecing my quilt top. Anyway, I did one ugly line of stitching. I was not happy with it, so I ripped the stitching and switched machines.

I now have about 1/5 of the FMQing done on the top and it looks much better using Martha, my Bernina 1530. I'm hoping that if I'm diligent tomorrow I can finish the quilting and start making my binding next week after work each night. I hope to have it bound by next weekend so I can move on to other projects I want to do.

I'm loving this quilt and everyone that has seen my simple HST quilt top has loved it too. My family loves it, which is really important because someone in the family that attends our family reunion in July is going to go home with it. All my effort and love is in that quilt.

Hope everyone is having a happy weekend. {{{HUGS}}}

    You are working hard! I've never even attempted FMQ, so I admire you for doing it at all. Good luck tomorrow.
