The binding is done and the quilt is ready to be shipped out! I think the red binding adds a nice touch.
Thursday is the first quilt guild meeting of the season, show it off there, then it will go into the mail.
So, with all this focus on the wedding quilt, I haven’t completed my SwirlAbout quilt. That’s the one I posted about on July 12th, and I was all excited about the new border fabric I bought for it. I still am, it’s just that I was getting some really bad waves and wrinkles in the black inner border, so I thought I’d save myself a bunch of grief and take it off and see what I could do to fix it; it certainly wasn’t going to get any better by adding another border!
The problem now is that I had intended to get that quilt entered into the Portland quilt show, but I think I missed the entry deadline already, so even if I busted my rump to get it done, it’s probably too late. I’ll have to check, but I have a lot on my plate coming up.
So far I’ve finished 2 of the helmet liners, but they are still taking donations until September 1st.
It’s also canning season, and my DH and I made plum jam tonight; it’s the first time we’ve done any canning together! It turned out really good, too, and we have enough plums to make another batch tomorrow night. This weekend I’ll need to work on making some pickle relish and maybe getting some pickles canned, too.
School starts on August 23rd, and even though I’m only taking one class, Innovations is coming up and I have another trip in the works.
Then there are the everyday, and not so everyday, chores that I have put off which are demanding my urgent attention.
I think I need to clone me!
