A Take Over

Not a hostile one, but a take over nonetheless!

On Sunday I took over the bar in the family room to bind the Glamping quilt. It’s a huge thing, and I simply needed the space.  (And I wanted to watch the football game on the tv, and catch up with my DVR’d shows…)

If you check out the back bar area, you’ll see that I’ve got piles of fabric there as well….this takeover has been coming for some time!

The thing about the bar though – the counter top is higher than my normal sewing counter, and in order for me not to be 1/2 hanging off of the stool to drive the machine, I had to put the pedal on a case of beer bottles.  I almost took a picture of that…maybe I should have!

Here it is – all finished an on my bed (not it’s permanent home).

Red Gingham for the back, and an aqua border finish it out.  I’m very pleased with the way this turned out.  And I’m happy that I finally get to enjoy it!

I quilted it using Deb Geissler’s Daisy Garden 2 pantograph.  I LOVE it – it was perfect for this quilt.  I used an aqua blue thread on top, and white in the bobbin.

About msminnesota

I'm a wife, mom of two (one blue, one pink), and I work full time. Our family loves to camp, and we're often on mini adventures during the summer. My fall/winter/spring/rainy day hobby is quilting. I started about 10 years ago, then put everything away when The Blue One was born. A few years ago a good friend decided to take up this 'hobby' and I've been back at it ever since. She's my partner in crime (A.K.A. 'the enabler'). I have no aspirations of becoming a quilt designer - I'm just not that good at geometry (I rely on my math major/computer programmer husband to help with piecing backs at times!). This little blog is my way of chronicling my quilting adventures. Occasionally I post about non-quilting things as well. Thanks for stopping by. Don't forget to say HI! IG: wannabequilter
