Quilts 4 and 5 were finished up yesterday--4 to go until I pin the other three tops on hand at our meeting tomorrow. 5 quilts in 4 days, not bad.
This is the Bama Belles Pineapple Blossom quilt from blocks we all made as a block of the month earlier this year--February or March, maybe? I had just put on the binding and trimmed it when I took this. Maybe you can see a little better how I set up to quilt on my trusty old Viking. This one counts as one of my UFOs for 06 so I'll do the binding--often the quilts are I work on do NOT but that's okay. I don't do it to cross something off a list in the first place.
#5 is Finn's top and what I am calling "9 patches and bear panels" for my record keeping. I don't have time this morning to go back for her first link. I will put the binding on (black in this case) after I get back from my grocery errands--it being Monday, after all and my usual day to shop.
Not sure that the quilting will show up very well but I did some free motion outlining around the bears in the panels to get them to pop the motif and lay down the remaining part of ther block. My initial plan was to quilt till the thunderstorms got closer or 8 p.m., whichever came first. Well, the storms didn't come and by 8 I was in a bit of a groove with the darning foot so just kept plugging to get the last few blocks done. Don't look too close, LOL. I don't have any toenail catchers but it is a little tighter in stitch length if I want to critique my abilities in this department. Like Pam says, It is what it is---done. Okay, almost done---the label and the binding, yeah, yeah, yeah. Think I'll do the Friendship Star chains today.
Nothing else to report--all I did is listen to "Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me" archived show, listen/watch "Dirty Dancing" for the zillionth time because there was nothing else on I cared to watch, cook and eat supper (pecan waffles though a good recipe I better not misplace for next time) At some point today I will need to get the block of the month stuff together for the meeting and pack up the car. SO off to really get this day started-----
