Yes that is right – one more small top done and out of the way. The Red and Black Checkerboard top had the binding finished and was washed and dried Monday night. It was the first time I had used Hobbs Heirloom 100% cotton batting that I remember anyhow and it quilted beautifully – no struggle with the needle.
Here it is on the table.
Of course it is not a true “checkerboard” pattern but that is what it reminds me off. I did just a very simple big stitch quilting with red thread in 3 inch squares, it was done in a flash – of course it is only about 41 inch square so that helped. I don’t know about you but quilting “dotty” fabric especially in black makes me kind of dizzy! Now I will get back to work on the last border for the Granny’s Got Style quilt (not that much left to do) and the applique for Floral Fantasy.
Tomato cages are now on the tomato plants – what a difference in price from one store to another for these fairly inexpensive things that we use to try to contain our plants and keep them upright. One store had colored cages now – red, green, blue and yellow for $6 each – the plain metal were $2.98 to $4.98 – at Lowe’s and a low $1.98 at Wal-Mart – you guessed it I got mine at Wal-Mart! I probably have these planted way to close together and well regret it later but I have a small space and I can not dig up more and have a hard time taking care of this much as it is.
One more variety of daffodils still showing up – I think this is the last of them.
