This Weekend in Quilting

Progress update

The other end of the church quilt

Well, I am still waiting for the Wedding Quilt to come back, so there is no progress there. Yesterday Careful Carolyn, Amazing Amy, and I got the church quilt on the frame and started the quilting. We actually mounted it lengthwise, since it is not a queen-sized quilt. This way we have more room for …
