At 9.30 tonight I thought I'd go start quilting my sampler sandwich, hoping to make some decent progress, maybe even half way done within a couple of hours. I started the actual quilting at 9.45. I decided to do a simple stipple as I want to wash and dry the quilt and make it all wrinkly, and stippling helps achieve that result rather nicely!
At 10.35 I was finished. I could not believe it and had to double check the time. Wow I forgot how fast stippling is compared to my usual concentric circles! I even had time to cut, sew together, and iron in half my binding. So now I am all ready to get the binding on tomorrow and get this thing done done DONE! In the meantime, here's a photo of part of the quilt, with the miles of binding thrown in a heap on top. 'Cause I'm fancy like that...
And then 5 seconds after I took that photo, the cat walked in and plopped himself on top. Cats and quilts - gotta love 'em!
Little update - it's now 10 minutes later and I glance over at the quilt and see the black cat (Mittens) hiding under that bit sticking up. I thought what a silly cat...then our white cat (Scotchie) walks by and Mittens jumps out and attacks him! Poor Scotchie was scared to death! I guess Mittens wasn't so silly after all. He knows what quilts are good for! They play fight like this every night at this time. It's rather entertaining. I'm just glad I had my camera next to me!
