I was on a roll with machine quilting and thought I would take on the Dear Jane that has been sitting in a cupboard for a while now waiting for hand quilting. I got two rows done before deciding that it just didn't look good. It looked like a child had drawn all over my quilt. Instead I switched the machine to a long basting stitch and basted the rest for hand quilting. I'll be out of town for training next week and this will make a nice take along project for the hotel room. This really is a quilt that calls for hand work, and it isn't all that big with only 48 blocks.
The rest of the day was busy with binding. There are now 7 quilts in my stack waiting to have the binding hand sewn to the other side. I guess I won't be bored during TV time for a while! 4 of these were quilted during my weekend marathon, the other three were already done and waiting for the binding to be made and sewn on. Now I need to go reassemble the sewing room and get things put away so that I can pack and get ready for my training tomorrow. Shifting gears is so hard to do.
