No Pictures Today

I'm almost finished with my courtyard quilt. I sewed the sleeve on and then last night I sewed all the binding on the back. Now I have to change sewing machines and sew the binding down on the front of my quilt. I will use a zig zag stitch to sew it down so that's why I need to change because my 301a does not sew a zig zag stitch.

This is the biggest quilt I have ever made.....it a little bigger than a full sized quilt. What fun I had last night wrestling the quilt around so I could sew the binding on. I don't know if I ever want to make a bigger quilt then this one.....but I'll have to when Natalie and Scott get married.

Can't wait for this week to be over with as Saturday is city wide garage sales in Ripon. What fun that will be......to find treasures that other people don't want. The week can't go by fast enough.

Happy May Day....whatever that means.......
