For a while I was on a roll, and getting a lot of the tops I received quilted and bound. Then my dad was here visiting for five weeks, and the time just got away from me. I did get a lot of knitting done.
I did finally quilt the top that had been loaded on the machine since before my dad came, and it is now finished. I hope to get going again on getting another batch of tops done for Dr. Kaufman.
This one I put together with strips of novelty squares from Denise. I'm trying to balance putting together a top from the pieces parts with just quilting one of the pieced tops. It's wonderful to have generous quilting friends. I backed it with pinwale corduroy, another donation from a friend, Marje, which makes for a sturdy backing. And surprise, I didn't do a pantograph!
In the meantime I signed up for a swap on About.com. It's for Amish style doll quilts. So many of the quilts on this site inspired me, it was hard to decide on one. I hope I can do it justice with the quilting, now that I'm almost done putting it together.
Can't wait for the weekend. Pat is coming to visit, and Friday we're going to Fiber Arts Fiesta and also taking a class. I'm hoping her visit will motivate me again.
