Robin Tuttle called me this morning from W. Jefferson which is just up the road. She just brought a lap quilt top to the cabin. It is basted and ready for hand quilting so that will have to be undone.
When Robin comes up in the queue, she will come help do her quilt. It is so much more fun that way!!!
July 14: Robin brought her quilt top to the cabin. We agreed on white thread. Robin's next task is to select an IQ Pattern.
Aug 07: Turns out Robin is not available to help. Her quilt goes to the top of queue.
Aug 13: Separated the quilt layers. Without Robin's help, I need to add a 3" border to the backing so I can load it and clamp it while quilting. Added the red side borders.
Aug 17: Better than safe than sorry, I added teal top and bottom borders to the backing too & ironed everything. Just too tired to load and commit to finishing this today.
Aug 19: Loaded. Will quilt in the morning and get it in the mail in the afternoon. So I say now.
Aug 20: Every time I came in here to read my email from Robin to be sure I did what she wanted (white thread, right pattern, etc.) I got distracted by all sorts of things. Then again this is such a sweet quilt, I seem to be savoring it like a piece of precious dessert not wanting it to end. Not fair to Robin though so here are the first quilting pictures at last. And finished! Pure delight to do this quilt. Thank you, Robin.
