On Saturday, I got my act together and sat down with my Tufted Tweets quilt sandwich and quilted it. Straight line quilting uses a lot of thread! I admit that I did not do the best job because I was just ready to be done with it. I have no doubt that it will hold up but it might look better with a few more lines. I put it on the bed on Saturday night and was totally amazed at just how warm it is. I had been sleeping with two down comforters, one in a duvet as well. I have been freezing when I get into bed, even with my little bedwarmer. Now with just one down comforter and the quilt, I am warm in seconds. Truly. It's so warm.
my next project is to finish the king sized quilt I'm making for an old co-worker. She got the backing for me last week so quilting is all that's left. I'm semi-confident that I will be able to quilt it on my little machine, as long as I take some time to roll up the sides when I get to the center.
We'll see! I have no idea what the weather will be like this weekend. If it's going to be nice, I might not have a whole lot of patience. I may live in Colorado, but cold weather and freezing temperatures are not normal for us!
