I'm still hard at work on my quilt for the show coming up at the end of September.
So far I've used four bobbins and I just hit the halfway mark. I'm going to keep track of my thread usage to see how much goes into this quilt. Yesterday I finished off a 1200 yard spool. I'm now working on my second. Thats for the top and bobbin. I'm not counting the colored thread, it's so minimal, just the black thread. Silly of me but I need to find amusement in everyday things.
Scribbling is a little harder on my back so I take may breaks but so far I've been keeping at this.
I'm also trying something new to me. This quilt will be judged. Isn't that a horrible word "JUGDED"?
This will be new to most of our Guild. We have never had our show judged.
In order to make this appealing to the members we have talked about it being a learning experience not a judging. And as the head of the quilt show I needed to test the waters and not be fearful. So I started with one toe in and I'm finally about calf high with both legs. I will go in believing that this experience will make me a better quilter.
And with that said, back to work scribbling.
Take care, Brandie
