    Finish this border or bust!

    I'm back from church, and ready to go! I suppose it's too much to ask that I finish quilting this border today, so I'll be happy with some serious progress. I like the design, I think it complements the quilt perfectly, but it's taking forever. I'm glad I have friends to quilt with today!!

    I'm taking lunch break now. I am half done cutting out my KS Walkabout quilt. Cutting out is my least favorite thing to be doing, but I definitely want to get the cutting finished today, so I'm sticking with it. Sounds like everyone is making nice progress on their projects!

    Love all the pictures so far, just managed to get the one strip quilted so far and have just drawn out the pattern now for the next strip, so thought I'd check in, it's taking quite awhile as we have to keep going & checking on how the police are progressing with their investigations outside, apparently 4 shots were fired & now the news people are around interviewing, can't believe we slept through it, but glad we did.

    Just taking a lunch break. I have been hand stitching binding on two wall hangings. Cutting out valentines for some small wall hangings for family members, also doing some laundry (sigh) eventually you have to do a load or two.

    Here is a paper template on top of the wall hanging. I wanted to do some simple quilting in the border just to pull it all together. I think this will work fine without taking away from the design. I used some little round cups from the kitchen to get the rounded shapes.

    Wishing I was sewing something fun. I am so short,everything I buy has to be hemmed. Will be working on some jeans and also some long sleeve shirts. I quilted all last week. Put the last blocks on a quilt top that I have been working on off and on for over a year. It is a quilt by Marti Michel and has the Wild rose Fabric by Moda in it. I used her templates. Never, never, never again. I hated them.
    A bed without a quilt is like the sky without stars!

    Just taking a break from cleaning up my studio, and came upon your day "project". I've nearly struck desktop on my desk, and will dedicate my evening to Block number 11 of Elegant Garden by Laundry Basket Quilts (Edyta Sitar). Have 15 blocks done. If I can finish this one today, I'll be happy. On Thursday, leaving for a Retreat with 8 friends. Of course, we are going to northern Indiana, and the forecast is for freezing rain. Hope it holds off until we are installed at the Inn at Windmere in Auburn. Hope you all have a great day!

    I'm reading about quilts and looking at pictures... does that count? my 4yr old twins have taken over the living room there are houses and little people everywhere...and that's where my hand quilting project is. I mostly work on it in my lap in the evening watching tv... after they've gone to bed.

    checking in again. I finished quilting the quilt, squared it up, attached the binding that was waiting, and started sewing the binding down. I stopped because I didn't like how I'd pinned it and wanted to re-pin. I finished that part too. Then, DH put the game on pause and we came down and prepped dinner. I will head back up to finish sewing the binding. Not sure if I'll be able to turn and sew it down by the end of the day.
