The Weekly List
i did finally start quilting my grandmothers flower garden quilt that's been basted for the past four months. i got about 1/5th of the quilting done, but because of what i'm doing - outlining the horizontal "rows" on both inside and outside of the seam lines - it's quite time consuming.
i got both my catvent and my x&+ quilt back from the longarm quilter this week. i absolutely LOVE the catvent quilt! i picked the quilting design, and i just adore how it turned out! i machine stitched the binding to the front and pressed it to the back, so maybe tonight i'll get the handstitching to the back done!
in non-quilting adventures, i joined a new gym - one that offers spin classes and has a pool - and i went to a spin class for the first time in a heck of a long time. i hadn't even been on a bike at all in over eight months! i'm a bit sore today, but less than i expected, and it feels good to be exercising again!
and i've taken naps with the cats. in fact, all five are on the bed with me now as i blog. kitten's on my feet:
goals for this week:
--- finish binding catvent quilt, launder and photograph
--- assemble Feathers quilt top
