Finally, the CC Mystery is done! love the way the QD wool batting quilts up & the piped binding is my new favorite binding method. Takes some time, but probably no more than all the hand-sewing, maybe it's a wash. Much pinning is required but then the final sewing goes pretty smoothly. I purchased a "Narrow Edge Foot" for my Pfaff which made this final step a breeze & using Bottom line thread from Superior in top & bobbin the stitching disappears into the fabric. All in all, a most satisfactory result.
The new storage units from Ikea are together & in place but the larger one hasn't been filled yet -I plan to move most of the supplies that are under the design table into this 4 drawer bureau. These pieces are white, though the photos make them look pink, must be a female, my new camera, LOL. I actually feel a lot more organized & actually noticed a difference working on the binding on this last quilt- clearing off the clutter from around my DSM helps I can tell. I received another client quilt in the mail today & plan to put it on the LA Monday. It's soft florals in large rectangles & we had discussed a meandering floral/leafy vine but I'm wondering if maybe I'd like to quilt it all with meandering feathers - guess I need to run that by the piecer! The weather was cooler again this week, so nice to push back the heat but we'll be back to the 80's over the weekend.
My Lenten reading continues in "The First Fruits of Prayer" & I am on chapter 29 of 40. It is suitably repentant, & fits into the Lenten idea of Examination of Conscience.
Tomorrow I plan to begin the piped binding for my flame quilt- my Mum used to say " don't tell the devil too much of your mind" & I often think of that when my "plans" fall by the wayside so we shall see how much more binding I get done. I really feel as if I am on a roll with this newest technique!
