We had a great visit yesterday afternoon with DD Erin, DSiL Jeff, and his mom, Char. Casual conversation on the screened porch (we got cold out there, too!), after which we all headed over to friends for the picnic and fireworks. Great fellowship, great food and great display of 'boomers and poppers' in the sky.
Today and tomorrow I will put much of my energy toward working on the long segments for Elisa's quilt. I have been steadily working on it, but need to amp up the pace this week, if possible.
I have figured out how to quilt as I go with this project. I am going to make long 'quilt sandwiches' of those columns and machine quilt vertically. After each column is quilted, I will attach the top layers by machine, and then hand stitch the back closed.
I serious doubt that my explanation is as coherent to a reader as it is to me in my head; I will demonstrate it more fully when I get to that point.
Happy Independence Day, and Happy Quilting, Friends!
