Joan Taylor and I are teaming up to make Tony Trivette a UNC Tar Heels quilt. Joan is piecing the top and I will longarm and bind it. This project is a good ole mountain horse trade venture. I need some work done around here that I can't do, Tony is willing to work for his quilt. Joan and I are trading services. Win, win, win! This eventually proved to be the beginning of J&L Quilters.
Dec 30: Joan has her fabrics now to make the top & I have mine for the backing. They have been pre-washed and are ready to sew!
Jan 2: Joan has been sick but says the top will be shipped Monday! I am planning to piece the backing tomorrow that has been lying across the longarm for several days now. By Thursday there should be a quilt needing only the binding. Several evenings later, it will be done. Soon now, Tony!
Jan 5: The quilt top arrived today. Now that I see it, this one is crying out for one of Sandy's custom designs. The curls in the sashing would make a perfect longarm design that makes this classy looking quilt even better! So the three wins may have just become four wins!
Jan 17: Sandy did her design today. I have had a time seaming the backing but it is now done too. This will be quilted with two layers of cotton batting for extra warmth.
Jan 18: Loaded & basted. Hit a snag in Sandy's design so will longarm when that is fixed.
Jan 20: Longarming done! Binding in progress.
Jan 31: Joan sent 2 matching pillow cases for this quilt - a freebie for him.
Feb 01: Binding, and thus the quilt, is finished!

Dang! I'm just totally impressed with everything on this site and blog. Just recently became interested in quilting. I live in New York City but was born and raised in Greensboro, NC - so, I have a special place in my heart for all things 'North Carolina'. Will be sending my first quilt soon.
