I had my staples removed today. I feel like a free woman! So I took my freedom and went home to do a bit of quilting all while listening to music. I tried not to dance, I really did, but it was hard! ;o) I enjoying listening to music when I'm in my sewing room. My lap top is my life line!
I managed to get the My Favorite Things pined and ready for machine quilting. I'm still thinking about the designs I'll be using. I finished machine quilting the Against the Grain and even put on a sleeve. I'm in one of those moods where I want to completely finish projects; the ones that are lingering around because a little something needs to be done.
Remember Old Friends? Well, I'll be machine quilting the border. I finally decided what I wanted to do with that space. Sometimes I'll machine quilt a project until it's safe to put the binding on. Then, I'll think about what I want to do with the rest of the quilt. I will not wash the quilt until it is completely machine quilted. Do you get that way?
Best get my day going! Thanks for stopping by!

Yes, if the borders aren't too wide (like yours), I'll add the binding first--sometimes the binding is easier to hold onto when quilting the edges (borders) of a quilt. And occasionally I'll go back and add a little quilting. Did you ever finish the quilting on that house banner/hanging? (Do you know what I'm talking about? LOL! You were asking for advice on quilting the roof.)
You are way ahead of me in finishing projects...I keep starting them. Glad that the staples came out, sounds like you're moving along well. Happy Summer!
