Quilted - already!
Well, hey, look what I did today! Not only did I start quilting the third Hawaiian quilt, I actually finished it as well - this one is for my brother and sister-in-law. I did a basic sort of pointy meaner with some waves thrown in. I did have an entire day's quilting time, with very few interruptions (other than a grocery delivery and a load of washing to hang out) besides my standard email breaks to stretch my arms and back. But still, I didn't expect to finish. When the kids got home from school (a friend does the collection on Wed & Thursday, most of the time) I had about 18 inches square left to go, so I just kept at it. Which was ok, although I have decided that helpers are not really all that helpful when trying to free motion quilt. Especially small boy helpers who keep wanting to hug you without warning while you are quilting. But who can resist small boy hugs? Not me, that's for sure...
Now I just need to get the binding sewn down on the second quilt and get it in the post - and then it will be the turn of this one. And after that, one more to go - my own one - though I have a few things on the agenda to be quilted before that one, I think.
