Busy Bee

I’m taking a little blogging break (in case you hadn’t noticed already).  I have been so busy lately, I just haven’t had the energy or time to prepare any posts.  I do have quite a bit to share, but I think it may have to wait until next week.

One of J.’s cousin’s is getting married this Saturday evening and I still need to finish her gift.  I managed to finish the back last weekend and laid it all out on the kitchen floor nicely sandwiched.  Then I got down and tried pinning all the layers together.  About three pins into it I decided this would not work.  They were leaving gigantic holes in the fabric and just the act of pinning a queen-sized quilt all over would take me way more patience than I was willing to invest.  I figure I will use some spray adhesive I have, but I will need to test it first to see if it will wash out ok.

Then I have the task of the actual quilting.  This will be my first time, so I’m going to make it easy on myself and stitch in the ditch in strategic places.  However, big quilt + tiny sewing desk = huge challenge.  We’ll see how it goes…

And don’t get me started on the binding… Oy!…

I’m really hoping I can get this done on time.
