And continuing on with my Quilt a top on Thursdays, I brought my Bargello quilt and batting and backing and borrowed my friend's HQ16 (the one in the sit down table) and got it quilted. Whoa! It's been a while quilting on a quilt sitting down. LOL It took a while to get my groove back! Oh well--someone will love it, I'm sure. Notice the sexy legs--not included with quilt! And did you notice that you can't see the quilting? LOL--it's one of those 'hang it high and keep it moving" quilts. I also finished a little quiltlet that was my turn to quilt in our RRBloggers group. I ended up doing it on a domestic machine-the HQ was just too big and fast to control on such a small piece. Sorry Julie--it's your quiltlet, so no sneak peeks. :)
Stash busting for the week: I already counted the fabric for the backing of the quilt I just finished, so no fair counting it again. AND....the quilt store in Pawley's Island is closing, so we made our farewell trip and found a couple of FQ's and a few half yards that will fit my need for aqua and reds fetish that has been going on in my little brain. So--I had to ADD 2 yards to my totals IN this year, but that's okay. I don't feel bad because there were some awesome batiks I REALLY wanted to buy, carried them around the store for a while before I put them back. I'm sure those bolts were hoping I'd come back for them.
Our friends from our softball world arrived last night from Holland, so I doubt if I get any more quilty stuff done this week. But--it was a great week and now I can get some sun!
