This is #14 of 18 to be quilted by the end of July … I’m making good progress! It’s extremely rare for a top to go straight from the design wall to the longarm but I had the right colored thread on the machine and the next one up needed a backing pieced. Pantograph is Leafy Love.
The binding is already on and ready for hand stitching but Keith is out of town until Thursday afternoon so I’ll hold off on hand stitching the tops quilted this week until he is back – Finn insists on sitting with me and there’s not enough room for me to maneuver the quilt around him!
In the meantime, I’ll knit in the evenings. I was very disappointed in this skein of yarn … It’s been in the Stash for several years and was wound by the on-line store when I bought it … for some reason it was a tangled mess! It’s an expensive skein of yarn and I’m hesitant to trash it so I took the needles off the cable and have set it aside in case I have the patience to try again to untangle it in the future. I pulled another skein this evening and will start over.
