DH is away this week so I've been getting a lot of machine stitching done in the evenings. When he is home I tend to do more handwork in front of the t.v. Last night I put the binding on the Brown and Pink Take 5 and did some stitching in the ditch on this sailboat quilt. Tonight I did the free motion quilting on it and now its ready for binding! I really like this quilt. I made one for a baby shower last summer - the theme was sailboats so when I saw this pattern it was a no-brainer. I was so pleased with the way it came out I bought some extra fabric and made one for myself to keep! This will probably be hung in either my kitchen or my office for the summer. Notice the capsized boat in the middle row? That's my favorite part! (Don't worry, the crew was unharmed and another boat picked them up).
So that is two quilts quilted this month so far. I have about 9-10 quilt tops in need of quilting and in January I set a goal of 2 per month. I met my goal in January but in February didn't get any quilted. Since I have two done this early in March I'm thinking maybe I can get two more done and catch up.
I haven't done any more Civil War blocks - I think this weekend will be a marathon session for those. I did do my first Dear Baby Jane block - forgot to take a picture though. I will post it to the flickr page tomorrow.
Thanks for the well wishes for Max - he is feeling better and is pretty much back to his old self - except for being depressed because DH is away. He hates it when anyone (especially DH or DS) is not home and sits by the sliding glass door looking out to the driveway until they get back.
Have a pieceful day!
