It took the morning to get Mai Tai Sunrise ready to go onto the frame. First it needed to be ironed, and then the kids needed to go to the gym, and then the back needed to be pieced, and then the kids wanted lunch and the laundry needed to be taken care of. You've all had those days too, right? By dinner time though, the quilting was well under way.
After debating for a long time about thread, I decided to use three. The blue on the bottom part is already done, and the yellow is about halfway. Pink will have to wait for morning.
Just when I had decided I wasn't going to be able to finish up the quilting today, Kurt said there was a package waiting at the front door. It was my new GO Cutter!!!! My last one got a little broken while I was squaring up crumb blocks. I thought about just giving up on having a die cutter, but I've already got quite a bit invested in the dies, it seemed a shame to waste all that. I also thought about getting an exact replacement, but that seemed to be redundant. So after much consideration and angst, I went with the GO! Big. It's electric. While I don't mind cutting fabric in general, I have used the dies quite a bit and it is so much faster than the rotary cutter.
