The quilting is done with no puckers. I loved using the Pinmoors. Not only was my hand saved, it was so simple to move them around as needed. I can only show you the back. This is a Christmas gift for my granddaughter, Maddie. And, she just may look at my blog, even though she has been warned not to. Now her mother, Jolene, would never have looked to spoil a surprise; however, her Aunt Janet would have climbed the Golden Gate Bridge barefoot to see. And, she would have convinced all her siblings to go with her. That way they wouldn't tattle.
I'm just not taking a chance of the Aunt Janet trait. I wonder if she still is this way? Of course she is. Now on to the binding.
I am quilting today using a "New to Me" product, click on Pinmoor to see.
Have you seen them at the big shows? I ordered a package of 100 from Loretta, owner and creator, over the phone. So far so good. I have trouble using safety pins these days with my arthritic hand and I found these to be very easy to use.
The real test will be the finished product. I'll let you know.
Thanksgiving is right around the corner and it is my absolute favorite holiday. It is a time to take a moment and reflect on the many things for which we are thankful. My reflections this year are taking me to many places, family, good friends, good health and you friends out there in blogland. I have met so many wonderful fellow quilters and crafters around the world through this medium. It is amazing how small our world is really. So to say thank you, I would like to give away a Moda Sudoku Quilt kit that I picked up while I was recently in Houston. It has 81 5"x 5" squares of LOVELY by Sandy Gervais. So if you are a follower of my blog or become a follower, please leave me a message and you will be entered into a chance to win. And, please, please be sure I can contact you. I will be using Mr. Random Number Generator on Thanksgiving evening (that's November 25).
No, still attending quilt shows, as many as we can. But, Two Wacky Women had their last quilt show this Friday and Saturday. We are still Two Wacky Women (in so many ways). But, we will no longer be vending at quilt shows. We had a great wrap up with good friends. Here is a photo of our very last booth.
Our first and last show was with Orange Grove Quilters Guild. Full Circle. We are now concentrating on our retreat business which is where we started 6 1/2 years ago. We have five retreats scheduled for next year. You can find out more about our retreats by clicking on the girls on the right. There they are right under my blog list.
