and it turned out beautifully. I’ve asked my friend to give me to top back so I can do the same for her. Hopefully this will be done by the summer… 3 years ago

Started on a new one.
And I’ve still got the t-shirt quilt I promised to do… 5 years ago
I did it! Circumvented the whole sewing machine issue.
I spent yesterday finishing the quilting by hand and cutting out the binding strips.
Spent a solid 12 hours today sewing on the binding by hand, and it’s DONE.
Even though I’ve been so close for so long, getting this last bit done really feels like a huge accomplishment, because before it was a mess that was no use to anybody, and now it is a beautiful, finished present ready to be given.
Success. 5 years ago
My sewing machine is on the fritz. I guess I should have it repaired. I really want to finish this quilt and don’t know anyone here who can lend me theirs, nor can I think of any place to take it and have it finished. 5 years ago
I bought new thread on Sunday and I will resume progress on this in 2 weeks (the next two weekends are: visit from Australian friend and trip to see my mother). 5 years ago
Got about halfway through the day after CDN Thanksgiving but the thread kept snapping and giving me fits. 5 years ago
I will get this finished by Christmas, but I am planning to wait until probably October before I get back to work on it, unless the weather cools off substantially before then. 5 years ago
I started it in March, and once mid-April hit, it was just too unbearably warm to be working on this project. I’m currently stalled out until it gets cool outside again; also I have to figure out how I’m going to quilt across this bed-sized quilt (yes, I’m just driving myself crazy with issues of PATTERNS), but that and binding are the only two steps left. 5 years ago
The birthday is Friday, so I think I’m going to just sew together the top and then make her help me finish it (it’s easier with two people anyway). 5 years ago
she came over and helped me work on invites for a friend’s wedding (I volunteered to do them and then totally forgot to work on them all weekend). It’s a friend of hers, too, but she really came up with a great idea and deserves extra rewards. 5 years ago
but I can’t find my cutting board which makes cutting those final strips a real pain. In any case, I think I only have to cut two more for me to finish all of them (wait, probably three more, and do some seam ripping on one I did correctly). But connecting the top does not take much time, so I’ll see if I can get another hour in this weekend. 5 years ago
back in the day when my friend was in a serious relationship…I figured I would get a head start in case they got engaged or something. they didn’t, and now I just want to finish it and give it to her because she doesn’t have a lot of quilts, no one should have to wait to get married until they get a quilt, and she keeps her basement freezing cold in the winter.
Her bday is June 30, so I don’t have much time, but I’m over halfway done. If I can at least finish the top for her birthday so I can present something to her and then she could maybe help me fill and turn it later, I would be happy. 5 years ago
