It's been a quiet week in the quilting studio. The borders for Night and Day are sewn together but still need to be pressed, attached, and mitered. Tedious but necessary for the look of the quilt. Meanwhile, Tom Dieball's University of Illinois/fraternity quilt is coming along nicely. It's completely quilted and just needs a binding. Good thing because he leaves for Australia the end of this month. My dad's always been a numismatist, and I am making a lightweight carry-on bag for his trip to Washington, DC next week - I have one for his buddy, too. They just need to be made. And I've sorted through some Christmas fabrics I haven't used in years to be donated to a woman in my friend Carol's Oak Lawn parish. These fabrics just need to be delivered. And that's the story from the quilting studio where all the stitches are strong, all the fabrics are good-looking, and all the quilts are above average.
