QUILTING TODAY?

If I can get to my Janome 6600P today, I am going to start quilting these two tops. I am having my hardwood floors refinished in the front two bedrooms and somehow I managed to stack piles and piles of things in front of my big sewing machine. I am really in the mood, so I'm thinking I will probably make the effort. As soon as I am finished and they look like quilts, I will tell you all about them. Like most quilts, they have a story.

Here are the backing fabrics. I wonder if I have any batting left? Oh darn, that may mean a trip to M&L or Joanns.

Wish me luck. Happy quilting.

Marilyn, these are great. I really love the top one. Before I was quilting I drove by M&L, once a week, going from LB or Cypress, home to Murrieta, I've never stopped in!
