Yesterday was machine quilting day for me. I have to be in the right mood before I can tackle a long-term project like this. There are days when machine quilting goes so smoothly and yesterday was one of those good quilting days. You know when you have to start ripping out, that it is time to step away from the machine and find something else to do!
The March Madness Shop Hop begins Thursday, March 3rd. My goal is to have this quilt hanging in the shop before all of the "hoppers" arrive.
I debated whether or not to have a floral or bead board border. You can see which design won the debate. It is difficult to quilt on black, and I thought this design would be easier to accomplish while looking good at the same time.
I have between six and eight more hours of quilting before this one is finished. I'll get the binding on while watching American Idol next week. There is a lot of good talent this year and I'm looking forward to the show.
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend. We have an agenda full of grand kids and I'll try to squeeze in some quilting. Our oldest grandson's 14th birthday party is Sunday. We are having a sleepover with the twins tonight. Zinny will be in heaven having her little girls here.....and so will we.
