here and I really like it. Borders, of course, make it more "real" and I have to start thinking about how to quilt it. But I don't have to think about that today.
I also got the binding on three hospital quilts -- makes me so happy that both the December and January allotments are done and ready for delivery. I had some yummy Marcus flannel that allowed me to line them all up on the same piece of fabric and quilt them one after the other. Hurray -- quilted and bound!
I have started Bonnie Hunter's Quiltville Mystery after sitting out last year. Thus far -- Step 1 is done and Step 2 (released today) is cut. I have not made a dent in the scraps I have pulled for this. For the first time, I have a friend who is also participating - although she's a high achiever and is doing the king sized version. I am doing the 75" x 75" version. Monkeymama rocks! She also finished the first clue and is working on #2. It's not too late if you would like to use some scraps and join in the race to get Christmas done while having each step complete by every Friday morning! Here's a link if you want to take a peek. Pictures next week!
Finally, I lined up all the completed tops and cut the batting for them. I don't like doing that and so I'm pretty happy to have them folded with their appropriate batting in the right direction. Backs for most are another story -- but at least the batting is done and another roll of Warm and Natural has bitten the dust (almost).
With Thanksgiving and I'm happy-happy-happy to say that our Toronto family was here -- fabric was the least of my concern. It was all about family!
Happy Belated Thanksgiving -- I am thankful for many things -- and the generosity of quilters would certainly be on my list!
