My Giveaway is still open until the end of the week! There is a Kathy and a Susan from Troutdale that are no-reply commentors making it impossible for me to contact them should they win! Fall has definitely arrived around here. My oldest son has been sleeping outside in our camp trailer and it's starting to get cold enough that he's decided to move back inside until he leaves again (3 weeks!). I finally pulled out the log cabin quilt I want to get finished up for him to take back to college.
When I mentioned that I had it pinned and ready to machine quilt I couldn't believe how excited he was. 'You never told me!' he says. Men. We had this conversation at least 2 months ago.
Love all the different fabrics used throughout.
So now I'm committed, which is fine. I intend to do very basic straight line quilting anyway, nothing fancy. I'm sure it will get very well used making hand quilting an unnecessary evil. lol The quilt is 70" x 84" so I'm hoping it will work well on his twin bed and still be wide enough to wrap up in. Quilts that are too narrow and scrawny never seem to get used, do they?
Probably not pinned close enough.....
For anyone that is interested, I get my rolls of batting from Heartbeat Quilting in Spokane, Washington. I order on the net and get my batting shipped through the post office. They have quick, wonderful service and no I don't have any affiliation with them whatsoever!
