Here's the pile:
Gabby the Gremlin, who we all know and love. Orange/yellow fat quarters for this flower project, and the first flower. Quilts for kids. On bottom, a finished one, on top a finished top. The backing for the top is the same as the 1 inch border. Next, Paddington. Still haven't done anything with him. Next, Ride a Cowboy. Haven't had space or time to get that basted. On the bottom, a finish! Fencing Matilda is done and will be shipped today. I'll have a close up of that in just a second.
My goal for today is to get Paddington, the skater QFK, and Ride a Cowboy basted. If I can do that, it will be a successful quilting day. Oh, and Fencing Matilda, gotta get that mailed. Anyone out there have a good source for boxes? I'm finding that the Flat Rate thing isn't as good a deal for shipping quilts as it is for shipping, say, bowling balls.
So some close ups.
I don't think I was supposed to see this. She's usually very secretive, but I *have* been up at all hours of the night lately, so I think she just didn't expect me.
Of course, once she knew I knew, I had to ask her to take a picture with her masterpiece. She obliged, but hid her face.
So that's that. I'm hoping to have 3 quilts basted tonight and the same 3 quilts quilted by the end of the week.
I've also decided to go a different direction with Mai's quilt...something simpler since I just don't have the tools or the time to do the hunter's star the way it should be done. I'll post pictures when it's ready to be shown. :-)
And, of course, once I get all 4 of those settled (Mai's might get pushed back since I still have until June to finish hers), I need to get cracking on both the Wrapped in Hope quilt (due in like 2 weeks) and Arman's play mat. I may never sleep again.
