February Quiltathon-Day 1

It's Quiltathon Day!!!
Judy L at Patchwork Times is hosting another Quiltathon.

My plan for these quiltathons is to quilt.
For the first part of the year, 
I'm choosing Quiltville tops.
I need to get these quilted before I retreat with Bonnie in May.
Less than 100 days. 

Here is Grand Illusion with the thread I couldn't make up my mind about last night.
I have since chosen the verigated green.
The quilt is all basted and ready to go.

I have most of the day to myself so that will make it easy.
Lasagna was pulled from the freezer to put in the oven for dinner.

Let the quilting begin.
4:30 update

I have about 2/3rds of my quilt quilted.
I don't know if I'll do any more tonight or not.
I'm thinking a nap sounds like a good idea.

It's been a very productive day.
Plans for tomorrow are to finish the quilting, trim and sew on the binding.

Oh I forgot about the quiltathon! I have 2 quilts basted and would like them done by next week. I'll look forward to seeing your finish!

I missed linking up today. I sewed a little. Tomorrow I will QUilt!! Glad we're on the countdown to Retreat. Show n Tell is going to be busy!

You got a lot done, another day and it'll be done. How great you're going to a Bonnie class, they always look like so much fun!

2/3 down and 1/3 to go! What are the colored plastic things (pin grabbers?)?
