She arrived with three wonderful quilts to be done, but all had been machine basted for hand quilting. Oh well, something to do in my spare time (taking out the basting stitches). After the customer left, I did remove all the basting from one of the quilts, and was dismayed that it took an hour to get out!! Oy! The threads!! These quilts will need a lot of sticky roller attention during the quilting process.
I finished the charity quilt and applied the binding when the phone rang yet again. Another nice lady wanted to bring over a quilt she made in a class. It is her second quilt, and very lovely. When she arrived, we chatted about the design to use and the thread color. Then, back to the machine for one of my charity quilts from Hugs and Kisses.
Ring-ring! The third and last customer of the day came from Hayesville with a laundry basket full of tee shirts for a quilt. Wow! This gal has ridden a bicycle everywhere. Pretty biking event shirts will make a nice quilt for her bed.
I managed to finish the charity quilt and get the binding on, but alas, it is time to make dinner!!
Tim has fired up the grill, and I am going to prepare some of the veg from yesterday.
Loads of hand stitching to be done tonight.
It has been a very quilty day!!
|This quilt was made by someone at the sewcial where I did the 2-3-2-6 tutorial. Isn't it pretty?!|
|I did a flowery/leafy meander|
|I made this wild but happy doggie quilt|
|The dogs on the back are just as happy ! I chose the paw print for the binding|
