I finished this quilt top last month and wasn’t planning on quilting this this month. But since I’ve finished my OMG projects for the month (post to come soon) I decided I needed to work on something. I just spent the last couple of hours cutting the batting – of course that had to be done twice because the first time I wasn’t thinking and had it folded in half when I cut for the width and only had half of what I needed! – and then doing the basting with the Free Fuse Powder that I talked about in my last post.
I’m planning on quilting around each pentagon after I stitch in the ditch on the sashing. Not sure what I’ll do in the wider border yet, but it will be something simple. Hoping to get as much of it quilted as I can this weekend, but I’m taking Cassie to the gym tomorrow for a makeup session, and then I’ve promised her we can watch the first Harry Potter movie since we finished the book last night. She’s so excited to watch the movie and she loved reading the book together every night before bed. I think we are starting book 2 tonight, I’ll have to check with her and go find it in the basement. Good thing about watching the movie tomorrow is I’ll have extra time for cross stitch, I’m still working on the Table of Elements SAL plus I started the Heartfelt SAL from Fat Quarter Shop. I’m probably going to be behind on that project since I’m almost halfway done on the ToE SAL for the month.
