Man, am I tired! I was longarming and stopped to wind a bobbin. I said to myself that if was after 10 p.m., I was stopping. It was 8:30!
My goals always seem to be just a bit impossible. I truly thought I could quilt three quilts today and put the binding on one. You’d think after 10 years of longarming, I could better judge how long it takes me to do things. I had a customer’s quilt loaded and she wanted Baptist Fans. I planned to be finished with that by noon but I wasn’t finished til almost 3 p.m. Then I loaded a top that Vicky sent me that’s going to the children’s home in Houma. Did the Baptist Fans on it.
I’ll get a better picture of it after it’s bound but isn’t it cute! I know the fans are upside down but that’s the way it had to be because of the way the backing was pieced. I briefly thought about doing free motion feathers on it but then changed my mind and wasn’t going to re-load it. The kids won’t know, nor will they care.
The backing was more fabric from Vicky. It’s such a great fabric. I almost talked myself out of using it for a backing but it’s such a perfect match. I’m going to bind it with the same fabric.
Isn’t this going to make some child very happy? I’ll take Vicky’s rejects any day! 🙂
I’m pleased with what I got done this weekend. Hope you are too!
I’ll be in bed before 10 p.m. tonight and that never happens!
