Week in Review
I finished reading Killer by Jonathan Kellerman and it lived up to his previous books...I didn't guess who the killer was until the very end...ahhh...love a good mystery, lol. The movie of the week, Gravity. Have you seen it???? Well, I am soooo glad I didn't see it on the big screen! I know, I know...everyone says you need to see it on the big screen but that is only if you can handle it! Me, I am a scaredy cat which means I know that I would be in and out of the theater during the movie. I left Jurrasic Park 3 times during that movie, lol. It was a good movie and I am sooo curious how it was made.
I learned this quilting tip at a guild meeting and was so tickled at how slick it worked! I always make my binding when I complete a top, rolling them up for storage until the quilt is ready for the binding. The wedding quilt was ready for binding and so I put the binding roll on one of the thread spindles.
As I attached the binding it rolled off the spindle without a hitch. Normally I have the roll bouncing around on the floor :) Because I had such an issue with the batiks I decided to attach the binding by machine. I attached the binding to the back of the quilt. Then pressed it towards the front and stitched it down on the front by machine....wow!!! I should have had a V8!!! I am going to be hard pressed to hand stitch down a binding on a bed quilt. What are your thoughts??
Wedding quilt done, pieced by moi, quilted by the Quilting Lab, binding and label attached for a wedding in JUNE!!! Ahhhh, this is what being in on top of the pile must feel like!
Here is a wonderful slide show of what the Woolies have been up too...and Mary R. outdid herself in the UFO finish category! See ya back here on Monday!!
