I have been very busy this last week. Two projects are finished except for hand sewing the binding to the back. First is the Temecula Quilt Co. mystery quilt from the beginning of the year.
I copied the border quilting feathers from Joanne at Thread Head. Her April 20 post had feathers like these on a little quilt and they are super easy to do!
My next finish is a donation quilt for a teenage boy. I purchased a box of fabric samples at a garage sale several years ago and one day (finally) I got the urge to do something with them. It is all quilted and bound now and the binding just needs to be sewn down on the back.
My "almost" finish is this quilt named "Everyday Best" but I think I will call mine "Kaleidoscope." It is basted now and waiting to be quilted. DH helped me baste this one and another quilt (a long time UFO) this week and my next priority will be to get this one quilted. I am really enjoying quilting on my new sewing machine! I have had it a month already - I can't believe it!
Now to the planning part. I made a few more blocks to use in my APQ Blogging Buddies quilt and I'm hoping that I can get this quilt put together sometime this year. I have a plan, but I'm not sure I will stick with it or do something different.
I'm also thinking that I might need to get someone with a long arm to baste my king size quilt for me. It is too hard to baste a large quilt. The two that we quilted were hard enough and I don't think I can handle a king size one. Any other suggestions? What do most people do?
