The big event was to finish loading my Trip Around the World (TAW) quilt. I was laid low by a fast moving bug Thursday and took Friday off to recuperate by lazing around the house. Saturday I tackled TAW.
This is called Harrison Edge 2 Edge. I purchased the pattern from My Creative Stitches where it is currently on sale for $5.00. Yep, an incredible bargain. (Note -- this is a digital pattern for long arm machines. I've never checked to see if they offer paper patterns.)
Now the downside of this gorgeous design. It takes forever to stitch each row. I estimate it takes 20 minutes. Well, it really isn't the design's fault. This quilt is over 90" wide (and 102 or so long... I'm in for the long haul to get this one done.)
On to my weekly goals. Last week wasn't too bad considering I didn't take as much studio time this week.
