TODAY IS A MEANDERING KIND OF DAY!

Yep, that is what I am doing today, just in a meandering type of mood. This is a queen sized quilt. Yesterday I spent my time piecing the back and sandwiching it. It is so much work to sandwich a quilt as big as this because I do not have the floor space.

BUT!!! GOT ER DONE!!

This is my first time for using Aurifil Thread to quilt and so far it is doing nicely.

Noon today I am going to be busy baking 100 rolls for a wedding. Wish me luck, every time I have company or doing baking for someone else, more often than not, it doesn't turn out as good it normally would.

Don't forget the giveaway below, great for cold weather and just for kids that love to wear hats.

Like the colors Batb. Said a prayer for your rolls. (is it just me, or does that sound funny?!?)

I would say you are pretty busy too. It feels nice to get a quilt done.

Murphy's Law - that always happens to me.
Can't wait to see the finished quilt.

Boy it sure does pay to use good lint-free thread. Can't wait to see more than a peak at your quilt. Can you send some of those rolls this way? I can smelll them, really.

I have the same problem whenever I bake for others. I wish you lots of baking luck!!!

I like meandering quilts. Sometimes I think we over quilt, you know!!!
My fingers are crossed for the baking... you can do it.

I am sure they will turn out beautifully!

Your meandering looks terrific, Barb. I can't wait to see it finished.

I liked Aurifil too but I guess many don't. I've not tried to quilt with it yet.

I am going to have to blog about why I cannot seem to stay 'joined' to your blog. I had to click 'follow' again.

Have a good weekend!

Have you ever tried Sharon Schamber's method for basting quilts? It works great for me and saves a ton of wear and tear on the knees!

Here's hoping your rolls broke the rule and turned out terrific! I look forward to seeing your quilt all meandered everywhere.
