Working hard

I got so irritated that I missed my self imposed deadline on my Dresden plate quilt, that I put it to the side and started working on other things.  Well, I have to get it done now, so I've pulled it back out and started quilting it again.  As usual, Pippi wants to help.
 I've been doing a cross hatch pattern on it.
 Word of caution, don't get in such a hurry that you sew the corner of the quilt to the quilt.

 Tiger had to check out the quilt and make sure it was looking nice.

 This is where it is right now, I have one or one and a half blocks to finish quilting.  Then it is ready for the binding, which is already cut and pressed, ready to go.  I have really got to clean off my table!
After helping me, they decided to take a nap.  Aren't they cute?  They love quilts, just like me!
Tonight we are having our first prayer meeting for the prayer quilt, and my goal is to  get the top sewn tonight.  It's only 12 blocks.  This will be perfect for the Friday Night Sew In at Handmade by Heidi.   We'll probably be there until 10-11 pm.
Tomorrow I'm having a yard sale.
What are you working on?
Happy quilting!

Yikes - trying to quilt with two fluffies helping must be a little difficult :) I truly adore when cats cuddle tho! Have a great weekend!

How pretty your Dresden Plate quilt is. Love the colors. After many years of quilting on my Janome, I opted for a Gamill LongArm. One thing led to another and before I knew it, I had a quilt shop and quilted for the public. I've always been glad I started on my Janome...it was a great learning time and made the transition so much easier.

Visiting you for Friday Night SewIn.
