It is finally done! Amazingly it only took about 15 minutes to finish quilting my mom's quilt once I finally got around to it. I had been avoiding it since Tuesday because I was having such problems with the tension and then with the wavy borders. Still don't know what went wrong, but I sure am glad it is done! I am also glad that I don't have to bind it!
The first picture is my son and his friend, Taylor. Way too much blond hair and blue eyes! They are so funny together.
Tomorrow night we head to Nashville to go to the AQS show on Saturday. I am looking forward to spending the day looking at beautiful quilts and hopefully not buying too much fabric! It still costs $9 a yard even if its a fat quarter!
Our local sewing center is a collection site for blankets for Project Linus. For every blanket you donate you get a ticket for a drawing for a new Janome DC3050. The last day is 2/18/06. I see a few baby quilts in my near future. Actually I have several sitting here that just need binding. Check out your local Janome dealer and see if they are running the same contest.
My headache never did turn into a migraine but has decided to hang around for three days now. Kind of a dull ache that I don't notice unless I sit still for a minute.
