A Busy Day

I am excited, thanks to dear hubby who was LOTS of help today, the backing has been loaded on the quilter and the batting is basted on and now the batting is relaxing....that's the only thing that bothers me about packaged batting is it is sooo wrinkled.  But I can tell a difference already and I will baste the Log Cabin quilt to the batting and backing in the morning and then I will be set to go.
I am really good at making things difficult.  I decided on a stripe with roses for the backing and of course that means the stripe had to be matched and the repeat naturally didn't match up straight so I had three uneven length of fabric that had to be squared.  And it was lots of fabric.  I chose a new bolt of 12 yards of fabric and only had a yard and a quarter left.  The backing took 10 7/8yd.  of fabric so dear hubby helped me carry it around and fold it etc.  And even helped me to pin it on, so while the batting is relaxing, hubby and I are relaxing too.  Hope your journey was fun today and you are relaxing too.


  1. Wow! That is a lot of material!

  2. I just read your blog to mom. She said WOW! She's AMAZING! Just got home from church and the message series has been Praise and Worship. I praise the Lord for you, your hubby, the anniversary quilt, and bunches of others. I relax when I go to a prayer group for our city, Nation, and Israel! Looking forward to watching the History Channel tonight. The Bible...10 hour series with Roma Downey and her husband. Just had a rosemary, garlic, mayo and lemon jiice coated on the chicken tenders baked in oven after sitting on counter and marinating for 1 hour at room temp. It was yummy!
    Have a blessed week in Jesus! Love and hugs! Angel

  3. that was a big job getting everything lined up-have an awesome new week

  4. I had to laugh when I seen your coffee pic! That was a perfect addition to this post. I don't have a long arm, so I found it interesting to know that you had to baste the batting to the backing. Makes sense now that I think of it. This is going to be a BIG job. Let your husband know we appreciate his efforts to help you, so get to enjoy seeing your progress!
