Yeah!! Three done! I'm getting in a groove with them now. Somehow I forgot shoes on the first one. We'll see how many more I get done tonight. Even though our deadline is no longer this Friday but the Friday after, since I'm leaving town this Thursday mine need to be finished in 4 days! Makes me glad I only need to finish 17 in total. (and also glad that I did not wait until Wednesday night)
Quilting on "the bride" is progressing OK...I have finished outline quilting all blocks, done what I'm doing to the sashing, and have finished 5.5 of the 20 blocks (and it's not even April yet!).
Michele suggested I should host some sort of "pool" to guess the correct day and hour that I finish hand-quilting "the bride." I've never done a give-away, but maybe this would be a good way to start. For those who don't know, I am trying to finish the Civil War Bride Quilt by April 25 (yes...(sigh)...THIS year...) so that I can drive it down to northwest Ohio and enter it into the Annual Sauder Village quilt show.
Before you comment and submit your guess, I should tell you that I work for a church and have to work that morning, so don't waste your guess on any time on April 25...I will have no time between church and starting the 90-minute drive to do any last-minute stitching.
I will find some sort of delightful quilty goodie with which to award the winner and post it soon to entice you!
So, write a comment with the date and hour of the finish!
