One of my PhDs...

Well, I took my first step to finishing this "Sunflower Quilt" by calling my friend's shop to book the use of her frame and machine to finish this puppy!
I booked this Friday the 15th, thinking that it was next week...
Duh!!! That is THIS Friday!!!
That will never do, cause fur-girl Ruby's stint at the vets is on Thursday, and IF she ends up having surgery, I should be home with her on Friday...
So, back on the phone to rebook, and now I will be heading to the shop next week Friday the 22nd with my Sunflowers...
It will be a first time on a quilting frame/machine situation...
Should be fun... I hope! lol! 8-)
The quilt is 67"x75"... 8" finished blocks.
I wonder if I prepared some binding for this already...?
Will have to go have a dig... 8-)

Now to decide which other PhD to work on till then...
Hmmmmm...?

Happy stitchings friends!

That is so pretty and how nice that you have a shop where you can book time on a quilting machine. If I have something too big for me to do on my regular machine, I need to pay an arm and a leg to a long-armer. *sigh*

Myra, that quilt is so cheerful! I love sunflowers. You'll have to let us know how you liked the machine. It's something I've always wanted to try, but never have. I should find some place around here that has machines to use.

I can't wait to see your Sunflowers all done up. So what are you working on in the meantime?
The Christmas Row by Row is adorable!

This quilt is so pretty, like the sunflower and strip piecing. I did work at a quilt shop and quilted with a big machine, dosen't take long to do a quilt, Have fun! Connie from grannyssewingroom
