What does that mean? Well, for the third week in a row, the design wall remains the same. Does that mean I haven’t done anything? NO!!
I quilted and bound this comfort quilt. I am very happy with how it turned out and hope it makes some child feel better.
I also began quilting Eleanor’s Egg Money quilt. My original plan was to custom quilt each block and border but early in the week I began thinking about where it was going and what would be appreciated by them. This quilt will be gifted to really great people who don’t have any knowledge or interest in quilting. They will value it because I made it for them but would not appreciate the hours it would take for custom quilting. So I decided to quilt using a panto.
And this is where I am in the quilting now. The quilt is 103” long so I really feel great at how far I have come. And, the binding is ready, too.
This is the pieced backing (better picture to come after quilting is done). That was a chore itself but it did use up a lot of 30s fabric. And now that I am almost done with this quilting, I will be getting back to applique and piecing.
And what kept me from getting that quilt done? Well on Friday we shopped for our new toy and Sunday we went to buy it. We live on 5 acres and 2.5 is “yard.” I have been trying to keep up with parts of it with a push mower and finally decided that I deserved a riding mower. This one is supposed to be able to head into our woods and cut down the brush that grows up between the trees. And don’t I look like a natural?
Now, when you are finished laughing, ride on over to Judy’s blog to see what others are quilting.
