Back to sewing!

This was my gaming weekend but I still managed to get a couple of things figured out as far as quilt projects go by.

Dan's T-shirt quilt, as he calls it, is in the binding stage.  It took forever to find a backing fabric that I didn't have to piece more than once.  But I finally found something that I liked so I was ready to layer it.  Or at least I thought I was.

Can you see a problem with my layout area?  Yes I do 99% of my quilting on card tables.  In this case, for some reason the two card tables weren't the same height so I had to try and get them close.

It wasn't too bad but then I discovered that the wall hanging/quilt is wider then the tables also. Sigh.  Eventually I got the project layered out but didn't discover that my spray basting was almost empty and didn't hold as well as it should have.  I could have gotten the squares to hold a little better but without a car to run to get more I had to make due.

Here is a picture of a corner of it.  It shows you the back which is a red/black marble type thing of red Stonehenge material and the binding against the red border.

Hopefully I will finish it this week and get it in the mail to Dan.  Then I need to work on the wall hanging of a breast cancer zipper quilt.  I'm not sure how to quilt that one.  Might have to get some more batting also.  These projects are eating up my larger pieces.

Love the red print you used. And good luck at getting your projects caught up. I keep finding more projects I want to make and my age keeps messing up my plans. Enjoy your quilting.
