I did get a bunch of sewing time in this weekend (thanks hubby!) and was able to pin, FMQ and get the binding sewn onto the quilt. I just need to finish hand sewing the last side down to the quilt. I think Aidan already likes this one with the bright colors... he was staring at it yesterday as soon as I brought it downstairs... and was looking at it all night! I guess he likes the kitty faces in bright colors on the black background for the backing. Here is a picture of the front... sorry it is not flat but it is a big quilt! 70x70.
Now I know that is too big to quilt on my machine... way too bulky in the middle. I just used a black cotton thread for the quilting on top and bobbin. I am getting better at this but still not 'perfect'. Good thing I still have a good 6-8 tops that need to get quilted. I hope to get through them by the end of the year... since I will be losing my quilting room early next year... or rather relocating it somewhere else in the house.
The goals this week are to make a Chelsea bag and get DH's quilt pinned. I also want to go blueberry picking and possibly raspberry picking this week and get those frozen and possibly make some jam.... it looks like a rainy week so we'll see if that gets done or not. Oh, and will try to get back to my 'normal' gym schedule too, since I only made it there twice last week.
Ok, time for Aidan's breakfast. Hope you all have a great week.
