Make-A-Quilt Weekend #2

Sunday, Day #6 of Make-A-Quilt Weekend – Part #7
 
I’ve decided that I enjoy Piecing the Quilt Top more than Quilting the Quilt.  When Quilting a Quilt that is larger than crib-size, it turns into a wrestling match!  There is soooooo much fabric, and with 3 layers (top-batting-backing) it is thick.
 
So, today has been a wrestling day!  I’ve had to wind the bobbin 4 times and nearly ran out of thread all-together!  Plus I broke a needle.  But I basically have the Quilt Quilted — YEAH!!!!!!!!!  And I only had to rip out 8" of stitches — I got twisted and stitched a part of a block wrong.
 
I’m taking a break – M’s cooking hambergers on the grill and did BBQ Beans for dinner. 
 
I need to finalize the Quilt Label and print it so I can stitch it to the backing before I baste the edges.  Don’t know if I’ll do much more today, but only have the label, trimming the excess batting/backing & stitching the binding on (actually that’s done 2x – once to the back, fold it over and another time on the front.)
