Saturday habit: listening to "Piano Jazz with Marian McPartland" in the morning and the opera broadcast in the afternoon. That means that I am at the sewing machine at those times as a common practice. This afternoon it is "The Queen of Spades", which is all new to me!
Sewing work is completing the borders on a quilt that may be 10-12 years old. This was a "mystery" from a famous quilting teacher that my previous Bee tested out for her.
For some reason I had the main part quilted, and thought I would add the wide borders later. "Later" was a long time in arriving. On three sides the border, batting and backing had been attached (not quilted), but the fourth side was un touched. Why? Can't figure that out now -- the pieces of fabric were right there. I found a possible weight of batting and pieced it together. I have sewn the last border, etc. and am quilting this cable design from a stencil.
Since I am so eager to get this FINALLY finished, I am not trying to resolve the corners, but am just going to the end of each border and stopping. I tell myself this is an ancient, traditional quilting practice. [I have heard well-known experts say this!]
- "Carmina Burana" was still interesting last night, tho' I'd rather something less often preformed
- Lots of time to sew
- Our kitchen eating counter the right height for cutting, pinning, trimming
