SUNDAY afternoon found me up in the studio transforming the unquilted top that you saw at the end of last week...
... Into THIS lightly quilted quilt:
Just ONE more pass and, for all intents and purposes, it will be DONE!! However, current quilting protocol requires me to quilt something in BOTH of the borders as well as something in the plain "squares." Sigh...
On MONDAY, I had fully intended to attend Knit Group. Unfortunately, one of my friends needed a caretaker for the day. Duty calls!
I did take the time to post another edition of Mail Call Monday. Head over to see the lovely gift I received from Peggy at Sew Enjoyable.
After dinner, though, I went to have another go at the quilt. This time, the outer border is completely quilted:
TUESDAY morning was supposed to be filled with T-shirts meeting fusible for my next commission quilt, but since I missed Knit Group yesterday, I decided that getting together with one or two of my knitting buddies sounded like a better idea. An afternoon filled with "pressing matters" was the general idea...
Until I decided that the "negative space" was positively screaming for some quilting:
After my monthly quilt group, one of the quilters stopped by with some "scraps" of the background fabric for my Tiny Nines:
That's SOME scrap!! It measures around a quarter-yard. Thank you for sharing, Kirsten!!
On WEDNESDAY, I managed to stay home to work on my T-Quilt Commission. The order of the shirts had to be revamped due to an additional shirt delivered last week. :o((
THURSDAY members of the Rainbow Scrap Challenge said goodbye to:
AQUA and TURQUOISE, too!!
I also got another row or two of the Tennis Quilt stabilized. Hooray for progress. :o))

On FRIDAY the RSC Quilters said hello to HOT PINK, as evidenced by my fingers and toes:
Again, with a hint of Lime Green. (Not shown in photo above.) What IS that Angela up to with all this LIME?!?! (Makes no difference to me... I LOVE LIME!!!)
I'll catch up later...
THIS is my HOT PINK sighting for today. You can plainly see how my day was spent:
Nope!! NO time for HOT PINK sewing!
Until next time...
