This is my backing.
This is my binding.
I can't wait to quilt them. I think it's beyond adorable.
When I got home I immediately hit my sewing room and Mom joined me to sew. She started working on a Christmas Quilt and then got the idea to make her co-worker a quilt as a gift as she just put in her notice at work. We were brainstorming when I remembered that I had 12 fat quarters that I bought at the last Fat Quarter Frenzy that matched. They were coffee prints and I got them just incase I needed a quick gift. Mom whipped it together and now just needs borders and binding.
I was able to get my last block for Shade Cascade made before dinner.
Then I quickly laid it out before we ate.
TIP: I've started numbering my blocks once I lay them out and then pin that to the middle of each block. That way I always know what order and what direction they go in. This is really saving me a lot of time. I leave the labels pinned in place until I'm finished assembling.
I fell in love with it. I ate at lightening speed just so I could go assemble it and see the finished product.
Next up was to put the border on my Smores quilt. The picture isn't that great. I was holding the quilt and mom was taking the picture with my camera and neither of us realized it was on night mode. I'll get a better picture of it once I've got it quilted.
Once it's quilted, I have jumbo brown rick-rack that will get sewn between the quilt and the border. It's going to be SOOOO cute!!!!
I think that's it. I shouldn't say 'it' because it's a lot that I got done in 9.5 hours!!!
I almost forgot the most important thing. I got a phone call about my Babylock QCP for my frame. I guess it's stuck at the freight forwarder until the LTL has enough for an entire load to the area. A new machine and regulator was ordered for me separately now and it should be here by Thursday...here's keeping my fingers crossed because now I have one heck of a pile that needs to be quilted!
