It is regret that I announce that my Rainbow Regatta has bit the dust! This quilt was doomed from the moment I loaded it on the HQ16! From the 3 backings prepared, to the ripping out twice, need I say more? I had to cut about 20″ off the length thinking that maybe I MIGHT try again on my Husqvarna but then decided to call my cousin Susan and offer it to her. I had 6 other quilt tops that I would probably never quilt and packaged them up and they are now on their way to her! She is thrilled to be the recipient of the flimsy’s and that makes me happy sharing with her. I am also happy, and relieved, because I have 6 flimsy’s less to quilt and no more Rainbow Regatta. Talk about a happy camper…..
I wanted to have at least one quilt completed this month from my ‘flimsy’ stash, and I did just that today! I made this Bear Paw quilt about 10 years ago. I fixed the backing, loaded the quilt, and quilted it! Tomorrow I am hoping I will have some time to do the binding. I will machine quilt the binding. The backing fabric is Mimi Dietrich fabric from 2006! I loved that fabric and must have purchased 8 yards total because there is plenty left over for other projects!
All in all, I am happy and pleased that have been able to complete at least 1/2 of my goals for March. Here she is ready to go!
Tomorrow is house cleaning day and Sunday we will spend Easter with our Melissa! I should have time to work on the binding, but if too worn out, I will work on my Indian Summer hand quilting project! May you have a blessed Easter with your family and/or friends.
