Top Finished!

I finished the top of my quilt tonight! No pictures though... I'm going to wait until it is quilted. :cP

Okay, so the house was so cool last night and this morning and this afternoon... and then tonight I was walking into my room and found that my carpet was soaked. Yes, there is some sort of leak from the inside AC unit (which is right next to my room). So, I had to turn it off to hopefully prevent further leakage and flooding. I'm going over to my friend's house tomorrow for a bit of quilty fun, so hopefully I won't have to be around to deal with anything.

I also finished tracing the letters/pictures for Gentry's quilt today. He has two left to color, but he didn't get to color today as he was very naughty this morning with his crayons. So, I had to punish him. :c( And we probably won't have time to color tomorrow as I'll be gone a lot. That's okay though. I can work on sewing the other rows if I want to. Besides, I still have over a month before his birthday.

I didn't work on the Stairstepper borders either. Perhaps I will do them tomorrow. Or maybe I will work on my little charm quilt. I'm going to use a different variation of the twin sister's pattern from Eleanor Burns. Oh, so many quilts... so little time. If I were really going to be a good girl, I would finish up another UFO top. I can't do any quilting on anything yet as I'm minus backing and batting for them all. But I could finish up those tops so my hubby could baste several of them at the same time. Yes, that's right, my hubby bastes my quilts... mostly anyway. He spray bastes them for me (as I have asthma and am sensitive to the spray) and then I go fold up the edges and secure the quilt further with some safety pins here and there. He bastes them in the kitchen so he has to move out the table and chairs. So, it is best if he can just do several at once. It is so easy to love them when they are this nice. :c)

Bastes your quilts for you? WOW! That sure is a keeper you have there. My DHs sole contribution to my quilting efforts is to say, "That's nice." when I show him my latest project.

I too find the spray baste impossible to work around. Maybe I chould get me one of those DH's so he could baste :-) In the mean time its pins and threads for me...

You have been busy, busy, busy. I'm glad to know that your DH helps you, like he does. He's definitely a "keeper". :-)
