Quilting and Stuff by Knitnoid

Quilted!

Saturday afternoon I  drove up to Saint Joseph, Missouri and dropped the cat quilt off with David Hurd of Quilting by David. Earlier in the week I emailed him to see if there was enough time to get the quilt turned around by April 17th and he assured me there was.  When I dropped it off, he offered to meet me at a local quilt guild meeting on the 12th.  Wow — that would give me the weekend to finish the quilt and get it on the bed before our guests arrive on the 18th.  Then Tuesday morning I saw this (the date stamp is wrong):

An email and phone call confirmed that my quilt was ready and I could pick it up that evening.

It was in a bag with my name on it, and of course his logo and phone #.

I picked the edge to edge design Splat and a lavender thread for the quilting.  100% cotton batting was used.

 

I thought I had 2 weeks so the plan was to make a couple of pillowcases and the binding.  I found 2 yards of Tossed Cats while looking for a missing pattern in the disaster that is my sewing room. It was perfect for the cases.

Last night I finished making the binding. I’m using Susie’s Magic Binding so I hope to have the quilt finished in the next day or two. There’s no need to rush – the weather is going to be nasty over the weekend so I won’t be able to take pictures until sometime next week – if I’m lucky.  The calendar may say “Spring” and “April” but we had a record low yesterday (17 degrees) and are expecting snow and sleet over the weekend.

    It’s great! Early finishing always is a good thing. Sorry about the snow. We’ll be getting the April Showers this weekend. A good time to stay inside and quilt. The Company will Love that quilt!!
