I just finished the final stitch of the binding on my Shades of Autumn quilt! I had a mechanical problem with my free motion stitching, but after a quick call to the repair expert at my local dealer, we figured out what was wrong, and I was able to complete the quilting. Pictures to follow - my quilt holder, DH, has been busy practicing for tonight's Christmas sing-a-long. One of the members of the group has been away for 2 weeks, so they are busy, busy, busy.
We stopped into my favourite local shop, "Quilts on Plum Lane" in Dade City. I picked up 3 pieces of fabric from the clearance area, and 7 fat quarters. My plan of using pre-cuts all winter has one flaw - I forgot that I was teaching the group a row quilt, and needed larger pieces for some of the blocks..... Don't you hate being forced to shop for fabric!
