Quilting, Quilting, Quilting....
I hit it hard yesterday! I just kept going and going and going on the machine quilting. I pushed myself longer and harder than I had intended. Finally I knew I needed to just stop for the day.
But I wanted to work on the quilt a bit longer. I realized I only had one little corner left to quilt. What to do?
I decided to put off the final bit of quilting (my shoulder blade was a bit sore), BUT I did go ahead and trim all the sides of the quilt except for that final corner. Then I decided to make the binding. I sewed the strip together, pressed them in half....hmmm, why not go ahead and stitch them around the trimmed quilt (except for that corner). BOOM!
So now today I can machine quilt that little corner, trim that little corner, and then stitch the binding to that little corner. I'll be ready to work on hand stitching the binding in my recliner on Saturday while watching FOOTBALL! Boom!
I think after this one is done I'll take a little break from machine quilting. I still have more top that need quilting, but I've done the ones that were the highest priority. Yay!
We may go to the lake today to make sure there was no storm damage there. We'll see...
Have a fun day!
