On to the border.. :)


So excited to be working on the last thing to finish the quilting on this wonderful MAN quilt 🙂

Except I still need to add the label once the quilting is finished!

This has the most intricate quilting I have done in the body of it and is very quilty overall…

I have used Aurifil grey thread throughout and 1 roll of 820 yards I think did this quilt with some left over 🙂

 I do use cotton batting in most of my quilts so once washed it will look wrinkledy and old but very cool and cozy as well!

I got my buttons for “Oh My Stars” organized!

In yesterday’s post I showed you the proposed layout for my 50 silver stars 🙂

And speaking of “Oh My Stars”… 

It is pinned and waiting for me to finish THE MAN quilt! lol  My honey helps with pinning and does a great job!  I believe a quilt well pinned will have no puckers if your tension is good while quilting 🙂  Have you found pinning or thread basting to be important or not?

More fabric is coming in for Project RJq … looking forward to starting it next week…as soon as I wrap up THE MAN quilt 🙂

How are your goals for the month going?   Are you keeping with your list, ticking it off and Partying??? I sure am !!!  Loving how I got motivated on my current project because another urgent need has come up.

Have a blessed week… stop in Friday and see what I am whooping about!

    You are making great strides on that quilt! I've moved everything along on my list except the appliqué at this point – but have an hour + waiting during swim lessons the next two weeks so I hope to work on that during that time.

    Can't wait to see your Man Quilt all finished and ready to be presented! And good for you to have a couple more projects waiting in the wings … can't wait to see what you're going to come up with for Project RJq.
