It was amazing how many times at the quilt store,
we would get this type of conversation.
" Hi, can I help you?"
"Yes, I need to choose some borders for
No,no, not borders, I mean backing.
Oh, did I say backing, I meant to say binding.
Or did I need batting, hmmmm."
"Sorry, I can't remember.
I know it was just one of those B words."
For the past month, I've been
working on my Olympic quilt
which is part of the
11 PP Plan.
The 11 Project Progress Plan is a very clever
idea my quilt group, The Quiltie Buddies,
have been working on all year.
It involved identifying eleven unfinished projects, easy...
giving each one a number, 1-11, easy...
drawing a number each month, easy...
and then progressing that project forward, easy..
Notice the word progressing.
It is not the word, finish.
So far it's been very successful.
So back to the 4 B's.
My progress this past weekend
was applying borders,
piecing a backing,
getting the batting,
and making binding.
The top is ready to be sent
to my quilter.
there seems to be something missing.
There are 80 berries missing.
I didn't fizzle out,
I'm making the berries out of wool
and adding buttons.
I didn't want the quilting to go over the wool
so to make it easier,
I'll add those when I get the quilt back.
In the meantime,
the number 10 was drawn.
I'd better go check my list.
Until Next Time-
