I would like to say I got a sudden spurt of energy to finish my orange and blue (name?) quilt. Actually, I have been expending energy like a mad woman but not on the sewing stuff. On the decluttering, haul all the cupboards out stuff. And the fight the crowds and do as much Christmas shopping in one day as humanly possible stuff. On the other stuff of life. But things are getting done and I don't feel like Christmas is hanging over me with impending doom because of things not done. I almost feel in control, and this is a good feeling indeed.
Yesterday was the get things done in the sewing room done designated day. So I did. I basted, quilted and bound this quilt.
I stippled all over, because that is my go to, get it done as quickly as possible quilting preference. It is backed with the Ikea number fabric. And bound with a scrappy navy binding.
I particularly like how those blue crosses line up so beautifully well. I would like to say that was due to very careful planning, but let's just say happen stance may have come into it too.
I went and spent the day with the lovely Ange today. And put her to work holding up quilts. (She's taller than me and was required to keep this off the wet grass!)
Tomorrow another quilt will be finished, and Saturday a third. I'm on a binding marathon. What's keeping you busy?
PS: I would like to thank all the lovely ladies in our Stitch Tease Bee for the blocks they made that went into the making of this quilt.
