I just read Kate's blog http://kate-life-in-pieces.blogspot.com/ and remembered it was Tuesday and I've not posted the 15 minute challenge for a long time. Well, I've been on vacation for 8 days so that's one excuse.
I've been working like mad on the auction quilt I began in January and by burning the midnight oil, the top is finished! I spent at least an hour or two every day this past week working on it--except for the weekend when we had Lily and Tessa here most of the time.
Anyway, the top is done and I did a final measurement to see how much batting and backing I'll need, and that darn thing has grown from a double/queen as intended to a king! Now I have to quilt it on my DSM! Yikes! I've done a king quilt on that machine once before so I know it can be done, but I also know my shoulders will take a beating doing this! When I finished the other King, I felt like a linebacker for the GB packers! I also know that I'm not going to do any real fancy stitching on this quilt--too much mass to manage on the home machine. I figured out a simple loopy design to do in every triangle piece that should be easy as well as good looking. Hey, isn't that what I said 40 years ago that I wanted in a husband? :o)
Anyway, my sewing machine has been working a lot and will continue to do so until this thing is finished and on the auction block in June.
