Not that kind! The binding kind of party.
Both pieces of the ginormous quilt are quilted. (If you’d like the back story on the quilt, read this post.) I pulled it off the machine and trimmed it about 30 minutes ago!
I used 21 colors of thread. I can’t even begin to guess how many thread and bobbin changes I did!
I didn’t keep track of my hours at all, and maybe that’s a good thing. And the only thing that kept me on task with the quilting was these headphones.
I listened to Michael Buble’ Radio and Gateway Worship Radio on Pandora. How’s that for a weird combo? I’ve found out that music keeps me much more focused. And I don’t need to listen to The Bickersons (my kids) when they start!!!
And now I’m headed over to My Hero’s office to lay the quilts out. I’m thinking it would be a good idea if they were the same length when they’re hung. I know that one of them is wider on the top than the bottom. I’ll do some measuring and figure out what I need to trim.
Tomorrow is the binding party. Anyone want to come and help??? I need to get this done, because by Friday evening, all five kids will be home. The Genius hasn’t been home in 16 months. I’m ready to hang out with them and knit and grill and be a pool rat!
And…I have stuff to blog! There are four knit things hanging on the back of my couch. Don’t be too impressed. I finished two of them in May. I think I have some spinning that I never blogged either. I will also take lots of photos next week when the quilt is hung.
I Cannot Wait!!!!!
