WIP Wednesday 12.7.11

This week went by super quick! Friday night was our Groovy Girls night. I didn't get as much accomplished as I had hoped, because I was picking out backings for several quilting projects. I picked out a backing for this t-shirt quilt and when I finally got a chance to sew, I added the sashing to the rows. I made the borders and they are ready to put on. It's king size, so really huge compared to most of the ones I have made.

I also picked up two quilts from Heather to quilt for Christmas presents for her kids. I felt like quilting Sat. night, so I put the first one on the frame and quilted it. I was just going to do half, but realized it was still early and Mikaela was asleep, so I finished it.  This is Heather's first quilt and it's for her daughter.

Mikaela was sick Sun. and Mon. nights, so I stayed home from work Mon. & Tues. I loaded the second one on Monday while she was sleeping and quilted part of it Mon. night after class. Tues. I finished up the quilting on it. I'm happy with how the quilting turned out on both, but the blue one seemed to be more of a challenge. The blue fabric just didn't play well. Heather's mom made this one for Heather's son for Christmas.

I just love the poem her mom put on each of them.

Tonight I loaded up a couple wall hangings for Christmas gifts and started quilting, but my thread combo is not working, so I need to make a change. I just can't get the tension right for brown bobbin and cream top thread on a cream top. It was too late to decide what to do, so I ripped it out. I'll do it later this week. I plan to get borders on Linda's t-shirt quilt and get it quilted this weekend. I've gotta put in a good day of studying/writing papers on Sun. but not much else is planned. The end of the term is in 2 weeks!
