Million Pieces Quilt Still in Progress

Yes, I am still working on the Million Pieces Quilt.  The backing is pieced.  The zippers are pinned on to both the backing and the top.  The batting is airing (or fluffing or loosening...) Thread has been chosen.


Today I will load it on Ruthie and quilt the first two borders.  Then I'll start on the pantograph for the center of the top.  When I finish the other side of the border I plan on turning the quilt so I get a nicer looking design on the borders.  Being a rather slow quilter I'm not expecting to take it off Ruthie until Monday next week.  You never know though.  I could get really jazzed about finishing it and whip through it.  


Needless to say, no matter whether it is done slowly or quickly I will be shouting about it on this blog.  In a change of pace below is a photo from our back door last week.  The weather had turned and there was lots of fog drifting around. Eventually it became a beautiful day.  I'm enjoying the cooler weather that has finally arrived in central Virginia. 


Digi club was fun and yes kwiltnkats, it does grab me. Some day I'll share some of the "stuff" I've been doing with it. Just searching the web for the digital elements ties me up.  But, today I've already spent a bit of time on that so I'm off to breakfast and the quilt studio.  


Happy Quilting All!
