Can't. Talk. Quilting.

We were out and about this past weekend playing on mopeds. We took part in an endurance race with 46(-ish?) teams of 4 who raced around a track for nearly 4 hours. I am so proud to say my team of boys came in 8th overall and 4th in their class! I am so pleased for them. Here's one out just messing....



Anyway, I played photographer all weekend and didn't stitch one stitch.

We arrived home 2 hours ago and I had a listen to Rhonda's podcast. Rhonda and I had a great time recording it, but this was the first time I could listen. (Thank you all for such kind, warm comments after hearing out interview!  You guys are the best!) I heard your kick in the bum, Rhonda. I heard it! You will see that Community Quilt finished sooner rather than later.


I'm spending the night quilting. It's a huge quilt (90x90 ish) so I feel like I am wrestling a whale or walrus or something ridiculous.


I'm quilting basic straight lines so it's easy enough.  I think, though, that is why it is taking so long to finish.  There's nothing interesting here to keep my brain occupied.  Just straight line after straight line...


I am off to quilt, then.  (I will show that Rhonda....)

Hey Cindy, Cool looking quilt. I love the splashes of colour. I just finished one 78x78 and my arms were sore when I was finished.
Great shot of the racing. Where was it held? My husband and son both race pitbikes.

Like I have any room to talk about someone not finishing anything ! Glad I motivated you though ! It is one amazing quilt.

Quilting takes long, sing a little jingle to keep yourself going

Lloks great. I get so bored straight line quilting. Mind you, i might need something mindless to distract me from those moped antic - eek!

Needled Mom said...

That IS a big quilt to wrestle through the machine. It will be gorgeous when you are finished.
