Quilts to go!

In the continuing saga of my quiltmaking, I am pleased to tell you that I recently sent 6 quilt tops to Red Red Bobbin for quilting. I had them almost completed before Christmas, but were time consuming details that had to be attended to. I had to select fabrics for the backing, cut, stitch and trim that backing and then package things for shipping. I agonized over the packaging. You can only imagine how much procrastinating I did to stretch the process over 6 weeks! But the quilt tops have arrived in Ontario and I have temporarily relinquished responsibility for their progress. I will have more work to do once they are quilted, but for now I can concentrate on other projects. Here are the quilt tops wrapped in their respective backings before shipping.quilt stack

I’m afraid another addiction has surfaced – one that I’d successfully controlled for the last couple of years. I caved after getting this adorable little puzzle – which still kept with my quilting theme. I was really glad to finish, because I couldn’t seem to focus on anything else until then. Only once did I have to contend with a playful cat who leapt up on the table and sent puzzle pieces flying.

  2. Those quilt tops look gorgeous, Terri. Kush is such a character — trying to squeeze into the puzzle box! What is it about cats and their craving to squeeze into a box? A dog, on the other hand, would just rip it to shreds. Or, in Thurber’s case, probably get his head stuck in it.
