May 05: A special couple has just commissioned this fun little quilt. This is an enlarged version of the original made in 2015. Someone is living right because to be able to find the same fabrics 4 years later is rare ... and I know who they are! (When I first learned they were in the market for a quilt, I sold them on Joan's beautiful Gold Quilt, my heart throb since I did the binding on it back 2016. They still wanted one made by me so this will be it. May 06: Ordered fabric from Nuts and Bolts Fabric & AceHardwareMerc. I must say the ladies behind these shops have the best customer service I have experienced. Thank you Earleen & Jenn. May 09: Fabrics are here. At the end of an aggravating day of longarming, I decided to go ahead and cut the charm pack in pieces for making the braids. May 11: Planning the braids. May 12: Sewing the braids. This is so much fun & fast. No fussy points yet looks tedious. Didn't start sewing until after 8 PM and got halfway in an hour. May 15: Finished the braids. Cut the sashing and borders. May 27: Trimmed the braids. Added the sashing. May 28: Added borders. Quilt top is pieced. Backing is ready. May 30: Programmed. Loaded. Quilted. May 31: Made the binding. Jun 01: Binding is attached. Ready for hand work. Jun 04: Started hand work. Jun 07: Binding is finished & thus the quilt is finished. Jun 10: Delivered in person.
