Quilty Weekend

I was a busy bee this weekend quilting away at the LQS with friends all day Saturday and Sunday.

I sandwiched and quilted both tree skirts and got the binding sewed on to the front of both. This took most of the time as it was a lot of work, and I had to mark and trim the top and bottom of the tree skirt opening to make sure it was even.

I finally got all the borders sewn on to my purple quilt and now have to figure out what to do for the backing so I can drop it off to be quilted. It is a huge quilt and will fit our four poster bed with a drop down to the bottom of the wood frame. I believe this is "Good Night Sweetheart" by Debbie Caffrey.  It was a mystery I started a long time ago, and misplaced the border fabric, so was at a loss as to how to finish it.  I found the border fabric and put it in my UFQ pile to finish and today it moved in to topsville.  Hopefully it will soon move off to visit the quilter, as I have a couple of ideas for backings, but for the moment it has moved down the list as I have some things to finish for Christmas, first.

I also sandwiched and quilted 15 pot holders, and started quilting my kitchen sink jacket. More pictures to come later.

Here is a picture of my good friend and quilting buddy, Jan, and the quilt she finished this weekend.Jan did all the piecing, quilting, and binding herself.  She also mailed it to her sister-in-law.  The pattern is from a quilt magazine, and I do not know the name of the pattern or the magazine.  I will have to check with her.

It was a very productive weekend.  If I can keep this up I will be rocking my UFQs. 


  1. Great work. They look even better quilted and trimmed with the binding started.

  2. Thank you. One is actually done and I am working on the other. When they are both done I will post new pictures.
