I didn't manage to get a whole lot done, but I did finish the quilting on the Union Jacks, (YEAHHH!!!) and right on schedule. My friend is moving into her new house this next weekend, and I want it to be ready as a housewarming gift.
I decided to call it Jumbo Jack. I just need to do some touch-ups on the quilting here and there, and get the binding on now. It's been a beast to quilt, and at times, I've felt like I might cross the fine line between loving it and hating it. Either that, or chuck my little machine out the window. But I powered through, and even though it has a few small tucks here and there, I think they won't be noticeable after it's washed. Fingers crossed, anyway. It was a big piece of the quilting pie to take a bite out of for such an inexperienced machine quilter as myself. That being said, I have LOVED this quilt-along, and Lynne's instructions and pattern were so well written. I'm glad I pushed myself and did it. :)
You're probably all sick of seeing it already, so this is the last photo I am posting of it until it is all done and in the hands of its owner. (I was playing around on PicMonkey and made a mosaic.) Then it will have its very own post with finished pics, and I'll be doing a happy dance in the street to have it done. :)
That's what I worked on last night. What about you? Planning on having some fun tomorrow surfing the FNSI links and the Blogger's Quilt Festival links.
Hope you're all having a great weekend!
