I didn't get to post yesterday because I have been busy taking care of some sick little girls. Both girls are sick with what I had. They have terrible coughs. They have both missed school. AND to make matters worse Elaina is also sick with her CVS spell. I posted about it here. It occurs about every 11 1/2 weeks. Actually, the last two spells have been short 12 weeks apart by one day. Unfortunately, I was expecting it. Remember, her last spell was in December. I'm always praying that a miracle will happen and she won't get sick. My heart always falls into my stomach when she calls for me first thing in the morning that she is going to be sick. Yesterday morning was no different. Poor thing has never been sick with a cold AND her spell.
Third, I didn't do a very good job piecing the backing. I had some fullness in the seams. That would cause the backing to sag a bit in places. I made some adjustments as I would advance the quilt to make sure I didn't quilt in any pleats on the backing.
I'm so excited to have one of my quilts to use in my house!! I've been draping it around the furniture to see how it looks. Well, admiring how it looks!! LOL! I will be working on the binding this weekend in my spare time. I plan on practicing border designs, specifically feather borders. I'm thrilled to say I've been getting customer quilts in, so I need to get going on those!! I want to thank everyone for all the kind and encouraging comments regarding my quilting!! Thanks so much!!
