Day 1 Quilt-a-thon Progress

Considering I tweaked my lower back on Friday and could hardly make it to bed that night I had a productive day in the Coffee Time Quilt studio yesterday.

I was my studio by 7:30 am and working on my Valori Wells challenge. I have it all finished except for hand sewing the binding. Would you believe I don't have thread to match the fabric? Oh darn, it means I'll have to go shopping at Joann's. My iron got all gunky using my pressing cloth and I can't find my iron cleaner either. My list for Joann's is already growing!

My next project was my Walkin' The Line brown and teal quilt. I finished the inside of the top and added half of the first border. I'll finish it this morning.

I can't share a photo of my challenge project until later this week after the deadline on Tuesday. I'll post a photo of the quilt tonight.

I am way behind on leaving comments on blogs. My plan is to get caught up tonight when I can't sit and sew anymore.

I'll leave with a photo of my favorite quilt from the Lowell Quilt Festival. It's called Irrational Exuberance and was made by Ellen Aron of Littleton, MA. I love the color choices and the mix of blocks she used. The quilt just makes me smile!
I'll be back tonight with a Day 2 Quilt-A-Thon wrap-up.

I am enviosu of a whole weekend quilting, but I guess making extra money like I have been is good, too. I'll have a mini marathon today.

Glad you are having a fun productive day with sewing! I am having a marathon of my own with sandwiching and basting quite a few quilts. Take care of your back and do not overdue!
