Binding and Christmas Cards are on my to-do list today. Spoken For is now off the long-arm and ready for my arms to begin the binding process. The binding is going to be the polka dot of course!
I'm letting the quilt "rest" and unwind from the long-arm to see if the background fabric around the Dresdens settle down. I stitched around the Dresdens and around the two center hexies. Then I added some little squiggles in some of the fans and blades. The quilt was on my design wall all night. I just checked it for droopage, (a Sew'n Wild Oaks technical quilting term) this morning. Droopage is also a term referring to my girlish figure! Enter smiley face here. Some stippling may be called for in the background to quilt them into submission.
If I do the stippling, this quilt will be able to stand at attention as stiff as a board. Oh, the trials and tribulations of machine quilting! Remember, I tipple while I stipple. Eggnog anyone with a healthy dose of brandy? I don't even like eggnog.....unless you soak my French Toast in it. On that note, it's time for me to go fix a French Toast breakfast. This could be a long day and I need sustenance.
