Actually sewing a quilt....alert the news




Can you believe it? I'm actually sewing and getting ready to quilt something. After not even having the machine uncovered for almost 7 weeks- I remembered I needed a baby shower gift for THIS Sunday.....so I spent yesterday making the blocks and today making the rows....tomorrow I will layer-baste and quilt it. Using black binding.....nothing like waiting till the last moment. But I'll tell you what- my back hasn't hurt in 7 weeks and for the last 2 days it felt like any wrong movement it would give out on me....wonder why that is. I get up every 20 minutes or less to press and do something else....

Nothing like a deadline to motivate!
The baby quilt is beautiful.

I just stumbled onto you through the Tigress Can Jam (although I'm not an official entrant). I must say that I love, love, love the holiday hanging quilts. I hope you don't mind, but I'm going to keep an eye on your blog. (Also very fond of jalapeno jelly, and very curious about the lemon/orange curds...)
