Quilty Week

It seems like it has been forever since I have posted. Time has flown by, is there a way to stop it? I have been trying to catch up on customer quilts. Here is one that I did get done, the other I have been working on, well, let's just say I didn't pay attention and have to undo over half the quilting and have spent at least 9 hours so far picking out stitches. How stupid I feel and I should have know better, especially since it is over 90" wide. Now I have to call my customer and tell her that it won't be ready on Tuesday. If it wasn't Monday I would take the day off work and finish but can't do it today. I should finish up tonight thank heaven.
On a happy note, I received my FQ bundles that I ordered from Hancock's of Paducah. They were having a big sale and that is the only time I usually buy these kind of bundles. I haven't decided exactly what I will make with these yet but there will be projects come up that will be perfect I am sure.

The quilt and it's quilting are beautiful, and I'm sure you'll find something to do will those colorful bundles.

Very pretty quilting and the bundles look great. I couldn't bring myself to order any bundles, but if they stay on sale much longer I may give in.

Lovely quilting, but you must be spitting feathers about the mistake and having to unpick so much. I can't imagine ever being able to buy so much fabric at one time here in the UK, but I'm drooling over your picture.

I'm with Amanda here----"drooling" over all those fat quarters! WOW! That must have been SOME SALE!

I can only feel your pain to a point regarding your customers quilt. I had to rip/pull out about half of a quilt once too because of tension problems; I was spitting nails! Hmmm....spitting "feathers" sure gives a new visual to that saying... :0)

I hope your customer is understanding!

I remember the first quilt I had machine quilted. I was so new at quilting that I didn't ask questions. I picked out the color of thread and the pattern I liked and I left. When I picked up my quilt it looked more like a sleeping bag than a quilt. She used the thickest batting I had ever seen in my life! It was aweful but I paid her and took it home and ripped it out. I have a new machine quilter now and we communicate really well :)
