Thanks for stopping, Barb
Yesterday was the day I decided that waiting longer to quilt the “Rock Around the Clock” sandwich will not make it any better. My hands felt a bit stiff (since a few weeks I did not have time to work on my patchwork projects), but my mind was longing to start. I decided once more for a free-motion pattern with my variation of meanders. Starting to quilt a larger piece felt a bit awesome in the beginning, but after a while I got into the right mood. I have finished the entire top in something over 3 hours. I also have managed to prepare the binding strips. So binding the quilt is my goal for today.
Here a small preview of the quilting pattern:
Gone binding, enjoy your day!

I’ve had also a check at the hospital and I am in total remission with my lymphoma. Thanks God, everything is OK 9 months after finishing with my chemo.
And last but not least – my hubby Helmut invited my for meal at our local Indian restaurant. And this means no cooking in the evening, hurrah, hurrah.

At the moment I am thinking about the quilting style for this special top. Should I go for free-motion quilting (with less experience) or for straight lines with a walking foot? Since I have not decided yet, I started a new project with the same wonderful batik fabrics, it is a HST Quilt.
More info next time, happy sewing
