January Quiltathon Weekend
Thank you, Judy, for organizing the Quiltathon weekend! I'm up and ready to go!
You see that strip of red Merry & Bright sitting there? That's the ONE border I need to sew on that quilt from last weekend to finish the top. I don't like doing borders, so I've procrastinated all week! LOL.
I need to stay focused and get it done. THEN I can move on. The project I've pulled out to work on is Moda's Collection for a Cause project, Heritage. I picked up this kit from Kimberly at The Fat Quarter Shop a few months back and it's been sitting there teasing me! On New Year's Day when Jane was here, I pulled it out and showed it to her. That was it. I made the commitment to cut it and start sewing those bazillion HSTs this weekend!
When I got home from work last night I read through the pattern. They recommend using 2" finished triangle paper. I pulled out my trusty Triangulations program, and then promptly discovered that I probably didn't have enough ink left in my printer to print them all. So a quick call to the quilt shop to make sure they had the Triangles on a Roll, and then a mad dash over there before they closed. I'm set to go!
But first I have to get that red border on! If not, well, then it'll just sit and sit, and next year this time I'll have it on my UFO finish list! LOL. I know me too well!
I have four quilts that need the bindings machined on. I'll plan on doing those this weekend, too. I'm sure I'll need a break from HSTs at some point! That will give me handwork for next week.
I'm off to sew!!!!!!
