Only 6 More To Go!

I really thought I had the day going my way UNTIL I started quilting my Red and Green Easy Peasy quilt that had a problem before getting it loaded. But I fixed it yesterday and the quilt was ready for me to quilt today!

But it wasn’t finished with me yet! Here are the problems I experienced quilting it! Evidently the backing was not measured correctly as I only had 2” on each side! I did not realize this until it was loaded. I refused to redo the back so I just had to live with the problems it caused me! There were 4 times I ripped out some stitches! Ran out of bobbin thread 3 times, and to top it off I was not happy with my meandering. It took me 5 hours and a tired back but it is quilted! I squared it and tomorrow I will cut the strips for the binding.

I will not quilt tomorrow, but will get the binding Sewn on R&G Easy Peasy and prepare the backs for Boo’s and Bat’s and Southwest Texas Stars quilt. Tuesday will be a quilting day. The next 2 quilts are smaller and should go quicker. There will be PLENTY of backing this time

There are 4 quilts remaining to be quilted after finishing the 2 above. They will be started later in the week as I am beginning to get quilting burnout!

Have a great and happy stitching!

Hugs, Nanette

  1. Hi Nanette! Oh, how annoying about having those blocks sideways. Knowing me, I never would have noticed it until someone pointed it out after it was quilted. You are rocking the quilting lately. You’ll be all caught up in no time. Great job! {{Hugs}} ~smile~ Roseanne
