Hopefully tomorrow I'll be able to sew the four squares together and remove the paper. Then it's just borders and binding; that's the easy part though! I'm not really sure how to quilt it. I think stitching in the ditch might be my best course of action because I don't want to compete with the batiks. Even though I intend to put it on the center of my kitchen table, I intend to put fast finish triangles on the back so that if I ever get a whim to hang it I can.
Tomorrow I also need to run over to the Patched Works right after work so that I can redeem my coupon that is in my coupon book. It expires Saturday and I won't have time to run there on Thursday or Friday.
My Grandma called tonight around 7:45 to let me know that she finished all the Project Linus Quilts that she was working on. They'll still need borders but that is my job. She wanted to know when I was bringing more kits. I don't have anymore and I don't have time to run to Bits & Pieces to grab them quick. I really don't know what to do; giving her things to sew makes her sew like crazy and wear herself out but not giving her something to sew is going to be just as bad!!! Maybe I should call Homespun Creations and see if they are open and if there are any more kits left at their store. If there are I could run there at lunch to grab a bunch. I've got to call Kelly anyway to find out when our first meeting for Project Linus is going to meet. It should be this next Monday.
This is going to be one busy weekend! Thursday night after work I'm having dinner with my good friend Ruth. Friday night after work I'm meeting Maureen at Frank's Sewing Center to baste the quilt she's making for her Mother In Law then we have our block of the month meeting after that. It's our final meeting for this session so we're having a party. I actually think I'm going to take jello shots. Well, jello jigglers. Watermelon Jello with watermelon schnapps. They're quite mellow!! I haven't made them in years. On Saturday, Maureen, my Mom and I are going to the Wisconsin Quilt Expo in Madison. In addition to checking out all the awesome quilts at the show and shopping the vendors we're doing a 1 hour lecture with Eleanor Burns. It's funny, when I was a kid I hated when my mom had her show on. Now, I think she's great. I'm really hoping we get to have her autograph a book or something; that would be really cool!!!!!
