Monday, August 28, 2006 - Finally quilted

Finally I have the quilt for the Vice Pres. quilted. It always seems like when I want to get something done it just doesn't happen. I wanted to quilt all day Sat., but instead we went shopping and to Kool Deadwood Nites. Sunday I was going to quilt all day, but I cleaned house instead. I picked up my quilts from the fair too. Time to get them back on the bed, I sure have missed them. Last night I finally got the quilt top rebasted and quilted it. It looks pretty good if I do say so myself. There is just one section to remove and redo. The line is really crooked instead of mostly straight. I must not have gotten it stretched enough or pinned enough as I have a few tucks in my grid. Oh well he'll never notice! I'm going to put a sleeve and the binding on tonight and a label and it will be ready for the party on Thurs. All the employees are going to sign it for him. It should be really neat. I can't wait to give it to him! I started a Fall Time wall hanging on Thurs at a class, but I need to do some of the applique before I go to the next class on Thurs. night. It's going to be a busy week! Paul, my boyfriend, and I are going home this weekend to help the rest of the family pack up the grandparents house for an auction sale. It will be a lot of work, but that was grandpa's plan to have it in Oct, so I guess we'll manage to get it all done. Tonights going to be a marathon night of quilting. Yeah!
