Slow Stitching Sunday...... quilt frame time!

I finally took the plunge and attached the leaders to my Gracie EZ3 frame this morning! After watching various videos yesterday and this morning I finally got them on and I think I have them on the right rails.

 Next up - making a quick fix to this quilt top - there is a seam or two on the edge that need to get restitched before I can press and attach it to the leaders. The backing needs a trim and pressing as well. This is my hand pieced trip around the world quilt top using 2.5 inch squares. I made this with the RSC Challenge a couple of years ago.

First up - a shower and breakfast before taking the kids bowling. Emily needs to pre bowl since she will miss bowling next Saturday while at girl scout camp. Then we have a birthday party this afternoon at the park. Hopefully the rain holds off until after the party. I might bring some hand work with me to work on while there. Then home to pin and baste my quilt to the frame! Finally.
The kids are on spring break this week so hopefully I can get some sewing time in during the afternoon/evenings instead of helping with homework and carting them to various activities.

Linking up with Kathy's Quilts  for slow stitching Sunday.

  2. So exciting! I would want to jump right in and forget about everything else although the park does sound nice. We are having a very cold blast of weather with snow... and a lot more expected over the next couple days - grrrr.

  7. With a tempting new toy like that to play with, even the park would take a back seat! (As I sit here shivering as it snows outside. Again.) I hope you get to play soon!
