Feverish Friday

Yep, you guessed it, I'm down to the wire on the Bowtie quilt--the birthday party is tomorrow.  It has been a very busy week work wise and then last night was Bunco and I was bushed when I got home---at 10:20 PM!  Wow, the Halloween Bunco was too much fun and my plans to sneak off early fell by the wayside.  Yesterday I got the binding all made, though...

I just love red for a binding!

This morning I spent some quality time tying off threads and burying them. My slightly blurry photo doesn't show the easy threading needle too well, but it was the perfect choice for this chore.  Okay, now I'm off to feverishly attach binding! 

Tomorrow we're heading down south earlier than originally planned because there is a quilt shop in Temecula that I have wanted to go to for a year and a half--and that is not open on Sundays, darn it.  Glad I found that out before the weekend!  My SIL Laura and I will hopefully get to leave all offspring at the hotel and play by ourselves at The Temecula Quilt Company. I've drooled all over their website and can't wait to pet all the C.W. repros in person.   Full report to follow...

Looking forward to seeing your quilt when completely finished! I went to a Halloween bunco earlier this week...who knew so many played??!! I was a lucky winner of a $5 giftcard...but only because I had the most snakes!! 4 of them...my poor partners in crime!

I'm late catching up this weekend. I'm sure you got the quilt done and that it looked gorgeous.

Take me to the quilt shop with you!!!!!!!!!!!

I love the red binding! I usually run late with finishing quilts also. I like binding, but always put it off for the last minute. I think it will take less time than it acutally does. Hope you have a great weekend.

Please share a photo of the finished quilt, and maybe with its new owner? Those are my favorite photos of my quilts--with a smiling recipient.
That quilt shop looks like my kind of place. Happy shopping!
