So what have I been up to??? Everything and anything! I’m pretty sure in the last 5 days the only time I’ve sat still for longer than 5 minutes is when I have been sleeping. The quilt shop was very busy last weekend because there was a little quilt show in town sponsored by the local business association. I didn’t work Saturday, but I worked Sunday and Monday. Fortunately, I received calls from quite a few potential quilting customers that had seen my work in the shop over the weekend. 🙂 I drew up a design for one of my customers and she really liked it. The only thing is…I have never quilted it. Luckily, if I can draw it then I can quilt. AND my quilting looks way better than my drawing!! LOL! So, I decided to revisit my UFO pile to see if I could find something to practice the design. As luck would have it, I found a 30s UFO that would work perfect!
It’s a top I started a few years ago. It’s a jelly roll quilt. As you can see, I need to apply borders still. That’s always my problem, I never seem to want to get the borders on a top. So this morning before I headed off to work, I did finally get the borders on.
It’s a very happy looking quilt. I really like it, but Scott is not a fan of the fabric. I hope he changes his mind once I work some of my “magic” on it. It’s a nice sized lap quilt. It measures about 62″ x 73″. Give or take because this quilt is NOT square. Oh and there is some fullness in the body of it. I made this before I really knew what I was doing. It should be great practice for me! I will piece the backing when I get home. I will be doing some marking in the borders and onto Annie it will go. I can’t wait to start quilting it. Practice AND getting another UFO busted out!
Scott wants to give a big thank you for all the wonderful birthday wishes. Remember in January when I wrote that we surprised the girls with Silly String when they were blowing out their candles. Well, the girls thought it was payback time!!! LOL!
Too bad Scott knew it was coming because the girls could hardly contain themselves!! 🙂
