I've been trying to find the time to sit and sew for a few days now, but those last two borders are finally going on the quilt today...promise! Then I'll have to get it basted. It *IS* going to be hand quilted so I really should do a proper basting, but man all those stitches and wasted thread. I think no matter the method pins will still work fine. Anyone ever use those guns with the plastic tack thing? The gal at the quilt shop said she loves hers. Might look into that.
Kathie declared these next few weeks a "catch up time" with the CW blocks and I certainly need it. I'm behind on those, so I can use the time. She also asked for us to post a picture of all the blocks we've done together in one spot on the design wall. 60 total blocks which is half way to a king size quilt. Actually this was fun, since I had seen small groups but never all of them at once before. I definitely need some alternate colors and combos, and maybe some lightening up.
Below is what I bought at the LQS today along with some other fabric for another new quilt I saw on Sharon's blog and loved. See the last picture of the red and yellow "trip" quilt! I always need ideas for smaller 50 x 50-ish sized quilts so it should work up really fast when I'm ready to start it.
These are for a secret new quilt. No hints, no pictures until it's finished. Just the yummy fabrics.
