Quilting progress

In spite of all the posts about books and knitting I’m still a quilter and am making progress on the twin log cabin quilts for the Condo.

I’m having to grab quilting time here and there because with Keith gone for 2 weeks if I’m not sitting with Chesty, he has to be in his crate. So I sit with him a while and read, crochet, knit, or work on the computer and then crate him a little while to work on quilting.

First, let me say that I HATE working on two similar (almost matching) quilts at the same time. I would put the second one aside for a while but I’m eager to replace the ugly comforters on the beds with quilts.

So as of yesterday, I have the binding machine stitched on the first quilt, the borders are on the second quilt and the backing is 1/2 pieced. Today my goal will be to finish piecing the back and load the second quilt on the longarm.

I just calculated that I will bust 19 yards on these two UFO’s (borders, bindings, and backings) for the 100 yard dash on Stashbusters.


  1. Good for you! I wish I’d been keeping up with the number of yards I’ve used. Think I’ll start doing that.How much longer does Chesty have to be immobile?Judy

  2. I hear ya about the working on two similar quilts at the same time…. I have decided to do this – but in reality mine will be more like 4 similar quilts…. At least mine are I Spy – so that I can have something to look at!
