Thursday Night

I woke up this morning with the list I had created last night of things I wanted done on my day off. One was getting all the info on my blog about the PhD challenge. Took a bit of time, but I did it!!! Along with my short list of things on the go - and I was quite pleased that my morning had been productive. I was having my late breakfast, ready to go into my sewing room and work on my last border, when the phone rang.....

Yup, I got a call asking if I wanted to come in to work....... Uh 'no thank-you' but..... I went.
5 hr shift, which is 7 hrs for me - and now that I am home, I am tired. I've been home almost 2 hrs. Had supper. Came on here to see if anything is new, and now, I need to get the energy to go and sew. If not sew, iron the red material. That is half the battle. This was written in my day timer a week or so ago, that today would be the day the borders were done on this quilt. I do not want to dissapoint myself. I also do not want to be making mistakes. I work tomorrow and Saturday. My next day off is Sunday. I do not want to wait that long. Sunday, I want to be working on something else..... but which one to pick first....... hmmmm

Have you head about Judy L's 'Quiltathon'?? It's next weekend, Jan 16 - 17th, and I get to work it!! But, I thought - "Hey, this would be a great way to make a dent in the PhD challenge!!!"

Here is to making our plans work and our dreams come true! One I wake up, I am all over it!!!

I have to go iron some fabric - I really want to see the red border on the top!!!!

Do you think I need to worry about that wrinkle in the corner there??? Or will the quilting 'iron' it out???

I didn't know which picture I liked better, so I used both of them. And the next one is the corner, up close and personal!!
I should just go grab a book and have a bath.
That would be nice. And then sleep....
It's almost done. I like it.


  1. I love your quilt! The fabrics are beautiful! I think the corner will quilt out~ it doesn't look very wrinkled from here. ;-) Sorry you had to work, but Sunday is a good day to press fabric too. ;-))

  2. Awesome!

    I need to get busy or I won't be able to keep up with you. You are such a motivator...

    I did hear about Judy L's Quiltathon. I hope to participate. I think I'm free. Good thing it's not this weekend as we're having family over for my sister's b'day.]

    Let me know when I can feature your quilt on the Christmas blog and whether or not you might want some greens, etc for Piece and Goodwill. I'll have money this weekend so it would be a good time to mail. (I still feel bad I never mailed you any blues!)

    By the way, are you up to celebrating my 40th virtually? I'm trying to come up with some ideas for a virtual b'day. I want to make the day and b'day special!

  3. oh your quilt look sstriking..I would not worry to much about the corner I'm sure it will quilt out..well done
    cheers Vickie

  4. Brenda, this quilt is gorgeous! I agree with the other comments...don't worry about the corner at all.

  5. Wow! That is indeed a healthy list of PhDs there girl! All the power to you for sure! 8-)

    I am pretty sure your corner will be fine once it is quilted...

    Take care!

  6. Beautiful! And look at all those fabrics you used! That corner will quilt out just fine - I wouldn't worry a bit about it. That is a wonderful thing about the pantos that machine quilters use - the pantos tend to be more forgiving than stitching in the ditch along the seam lines. Cheers! Evelyn
