After my finish last weekend, I was in the quilting mood. I put a new needle in the machine, cleaned and oiled and loaded the RWB Boxy Stars. So much for that! Somehow the machine was out of time. That is the most frustrating thing for me. So much fiddly, fiddly that it makes me nuts. So instead, I just walk away. Then come back and try again, get frustrated and walk away. Really, for 3 days I did this. Then yesterday I got mad at myself and dug out the dvd and stuck with it until I my upper and lower threads were perfectly balanced.
The donation quilt for the VA hospital is ready to have the binding stitched down. I cut the stripes for bias binding. I love the diagonal stripes.
The quilt for the hunting club is finished. The last stitch in the binding was done at 10:30 last night. I'd like to thank Julia Roberts and Tom Hanks for keeping me company while I stitched.
This morning I loaded up this fun flannel Split Decision quilt that was on my design wall March 14, 2011. This was February's UFO Challenge project that didn't even make it out of the bag. It's such a bright fun quilt, it's a shame it took me so long to quilt it. Now I will go in and put the binding on it and it will be finished today because I will machine stitch the binding down.
What's up next??? Maybe I'll find something to practice some feathers on. Or maybe I'll get out this month's UFO and work on it since it's my choice of a project from last year's list that I didn't do. She says as she rolls her eyes at herself.
