    Got the coffee on, a good movie to "listen" to, and I'm ready to finally finish SOMETHING! it's my daughter's quilt she made for her boyfriend this summer. It's for his birthday on the 16th.

    The colors are truly modern and up to date. I searched Ethan Allen Furniture for decorating ideas and they feature "black and white". You will have to let us know what the quilt looks like as you progress. :D

    I tell ya what...she made it challenging. I had to fix a few seams and I don't know if the edges will end up straight but her layout and overall execution are very good for a 2nd quilt that she cut out by hand (the rotary cutter scares her) and put together in one day. it's a Turning Twenty pattern and I'm very proud of her :) I will post a pic probably tomorrow. I feel an all-nighter coming on!

    oh yeah, I'm freehand meandering it.

    Is that a Janome 4800QC? I have the same machine and LOVE it!

    Make sure you post pics when you're done with that quilt. :D

    it is a 4800 but I've never seen a QC on it. I think the only thing it's missing is that mock hand-quilting stitch. I've had it for 7 years. I made it halfway done but my eyes gave out before the rest of me did :) I also got one french seam pillowcase done for the Crown Royal quilt which I hope to have pin basted by the middle of the week. This quilt took roughly 200 Crown Royal bags and the trim on the pillowcase is from the long piece of the bag left when you cut the front from the back of the bag. I used Synthropol and fabric fixative to set the purple dye since the bags aren't usually intended for quilts.

    Oh yes, the backing for my daughter's quilt and the pillowcases came from Walmart's $1 table. 8 yards for the pillowcases, backing and enough left to do the binding on DD's quilt.
