Tedi's 16 Patch Ready for the Longarm

Up at 2am again.  Lots of Netflix and reading going on:)  I finished the top of Tedi's quilt, got the back ready and used a leftover piece for the lable.  Binding is cut-feels good.  My friends, one from Lancaster and one from El Cajon will spend a day with me at Quilter's Paradise renting the longarm.  Jan has a queen to quilt as well.  We need a good visit! if we don't finish both on Monday, I will have them help me load mine and i will come back Tuesday and finish.

On back patio in shade


58x74-large enough that I won't add borders

Backing is a white on white with a paisley design-didn't have a large batik piece but I think the W on W will be fine-going with a medium thread on both sides so the quilting will show

Need one more border on these placemats and have 2 borders to put on the other 2-there were just enough end pieces to make four mats all a little different.
I also got 3 EPP pies prepped and 12 basket handles prepped with applique templates to finish a mini quilt for a class in 2 weeks.  Not at all tired-hope I can sleep tonight-but not before Downton Abbey!

Aren't batiks fun? They add so much interest. I really like the very subtle touches of blue. Your label is exquisite.

Wow, Elaine, that was really fast. The quilt top looks fabulous, and the label is perfect. Have a great day!
