what's up tonight??


This top is made from the blocks I worked on as a leader/enders during the wedding quilt project.

I have been working on them here and there since I returned home. This morning, I decided to get the vertical rows stitched.
I am having dinner and a sewing night with my aunt tonight. I wanted to work on this top and figured if all I had to stitch were the rows together, it would be easy. I am going to be helping her re-learn her machine and work on a simple project. Once I have this top together, I will be adding borders-fabric I bought a while back-so more stash busting ahead! It's WNBA playoff time and there will be two more games waiting tonight once I get back home to be watched. It's nice to be at this stage of this project. I think while I watch the games tonight, I will wash the border fabric-I am pretty sure it needs it. Tomorrow I am meeting up with Patti and we are headed Hollys way. It's going to be a quilty day! I look forward to great company and whatever else happens.

Pretty! Did you pre-sort the colors ahead of time??? I have been studying the color wheel lately trying to get some sort of semblance for my scrap colors. I love yours!

Cheers!

Hi Cher, the string top looks just yummy! Like a bowl of summer fruit salad...all green grapes and cantelope, etc. Really a beatuty!
And I just love the wedding quilt..it turned out soooo very well. A lot of work, but what a masterpiece.
Hope you had a wonderful sewing time with Patti and Holly...*VBS* Hugs, Finn
