A funny thing happened to me…
Posted 18 January 2008on:
It didn’t happen to me on my way… but actually after I got to our guild demo night.
I wasn’t planning on participating, as they were doing valentine postcards, and I have never done a postcard, so didn’t know what to bring.
A couple of the members offered to assist me in finding a way to quilt a Mystery Quilt I did a year ago. I thought it would also be a good idea to bring a couple of others, to be sandwiched, then I would be ready to quilt them.
Once I was ready, I got my quilt top, batting and backing out… then realized no masking tape, to tape it down. So the hunt for tape was on. As I lived relatively close by it was suggested I run home and get some. As I was about to grab my jacket and dash out the door another member, asked where I was going. So I told her “home for some tape”… she pulls open a drawer… and voila! tape. So next we take the chairs of the table and put two tables together. I pick up the backing only to realize… I had not cut it, and pieced it to fit. Well, I know what I’ll be doing this weekend.
I have set goals for the weekend.
- fix oopsies on the mystery quilt
- piece backing for mystery quilt
- sandwich mystery quilt
- quilt the stars on the mystery quilt
And if that goes well, and there are no other distractions, I will tackle
- piece the backing for “There’s a dog on my quilt”
- prepare binding for mystery quilt
- sandwich “There’s a dog on my quilt”
- prepare binding for “There’s a dog on my quilt”.
These are the two quilts I am talking about.
