Still Quilting

First up ... Hi Sharon & Jon, thank you for drinkies last nite, it was fun! (Our distant family members & good friends who I only last night discovered have been following my blog!) The kids and I went to their daughter's birthday after school yesterday, and it turned into drinks and husbands joining in after work, and a fun night!

Anyways ... here is my Starstruck top, I thought I'd share, I just moved the hoop again. I'm definitely two thirds done with the quilting. I haven't done much in the last couple of days, and I hope to get some done tonight. We have a BBQ with friends tomorrow which I have to prepare for, so I'll do some chores as well *sigh*. The BBQ is the fun part ... but the preparation is less fun.

When I took the picture I turned the backing fabric forward so you can see the fabrics I've used. I used four different pieces, all Judie Rothermel fabrics that I purchased while in Paducah last year. I sure did buy a lot of fabric, it really will take me a while to get through it all.

I'd ideally like to get the quilting finished on or before Wednesday, that way I can be sewing the binding down at quilt group on Thursday. That may be ambitious, but a girl can only try. Sleep is highly overrated and a waste of good time right ... :-)

You're quilting pretty fast on that! Love the backing. At least you are using what you buy - that's a good thing. Sounds like your Saturday night was great fun!

Sleep? Who needs sleep? (says the woman commenting on your blog at 1:32 am local time and whose toddler will be up at 7)

Its a beautiful quilt, and you are working splendidly on it. I am amazed at how quickly you get things done - especially since you are hand quilting and I am doing it all by machine. Great job.

I always wonder which of my friends are reading my blog without letting me know! So far xounter hasn't found anyone in my town besides me, but there are a lot of unknowns!

Machine quilting is 'work' and hand quilting is relaxing. Congratulations on your blogiversary, sorry I missed the draw.

I really love this quilt - how nice that you are hand quilting it.

I always get a little freaked out when someone comments about something on my blog when I didn't realize they were reading it. Luckily I'm not the type to share things on it that I don't want others to know.
