I can mark another one off my list!! This is another client quilt. It is a very large Carpenter's Star quilt. The quilt shop sold these as kits and I have another one to quilt after Christmas that is done in a different color scheme. I quilted it with a panto called, Verdant. I have quilted several lately with that design and I have a couple more quilts that need to be quilted with that same design. It quilted up great and I only had ONE thread break in the whole quilt and the quilt is something like 104 inches. I got a small shipment of Maderia thread in. It is my very favorite to use. Hubby looked at it and said "That doesn't look like 22,000 yards of thread" but it is. Each cone has 5500 yards. This will last me a while. I was running low on these colors and I tend to use them a lot. I also ordered a color card. They don't really list the colors by name, just numbers so it is hard to determine the exact color. Hunter has a little friend spending the weekend so I figure I probably could not start on another quilt today. Now that I got that big one off the frame, I will fix supper and MAKE some bindings tonight. I have 4 more quilts that need quilted before Christmas and 3 of them I will be doing the binding for. I figure I can work on the handwork late at night as I am resting on the couch.
I was thinking today that I will be delivering a pile of quilts to the quilt shop on Monday and they have a sale going on......you know where this is headed right? Actually, I can't spend very much on fabric right now but they have some of their Civil War Fat Quarters bagged up and priced 10/$10. So at a dollar each, that is too good to pass up. I'm delivering 6 client quilts so I probably wouldn't miss $10 or $20 bucks....right? LOL!
I'm off to get supper started and pack a few more boxes.....I didn't realize we had this much JUNK! LOL!
