Remember this?


Remember this...this that I was making for a backing for another quilt.  Then Sarah saw it and showed interest.  So, I decided to use it for a quilt top and made a backing for it.  It is now quilted and awaiting the binding.  Hoping I get the binding sewn on today, at least sewn to the front....then will come the joy of sitting and stitching it down to the back by hand.  Even though I am not proud of the quilting, I can't wait to show it to you and show you the back.

It will be alright if you don't say this is pretty...I don't even think it is pretty.  But it is interesting...and it is fun to look and figure out how it all came together.  And the quilting is  nothing to brag about either.  I did loose quilting....oh, closer than the 10 inches apart that warm and white requires...but still really sparse to what I do normally.

****************
I made a big, big pot of vegetable soup yesterday...I make such a pig of myself when I make it.  I grab a bowl of it every time I pass through the kitchen.  I divided what was left into two containers.  I will freeze one, and the other we will have in a couple days.   That will mean I don't have to cook one time, only reheat.
******************
I have slept in the past two mornings and feel like I have wasted half my day.  I am just a person that needs to get up and get going.  How about you?  I really feel better all the way around if I am up and going by 6:30-7:30.  I know others get up earlier than that, but that is a good time frame for me.

But I have been watching you tube videos at night after Roger goes to bed...Friday night I was up till after 3:00 a.m. watching sewing videos.  And had to make myself go to bed then...then last night it was quilting videos....

Speaking of quilting, I think I am heading down in the basement with my latest.  I might even start with the binding.

Well, I think the quilt is very pretty! And home-made veggie soup sounds devine.

My hubby slept til almost 9am this morning --and then was mad that I hadn't awakened him.. I thought he probably needed the extra rest.....Our bodies sometimes just 'tell' us when we need extra rest...

Love you quilt.. I always love quilts --ALL of them...

That Veggie soup sounds wonderful... YUM... Fall must be in the air.
Hugs,
Betsy

I love it and can't wait to see it again, baking and all!!! What makes it so special to me is the mix of fabrics, all so very different and so much to look at, but in the end it all blends together so well and all goes together even though the fabrics are all so different.

to hot to eat soup here, have to wait for December but i do love veggie soup, homemade kind, not canned. i watch youtube vids at 4 or 5 am if i am not busy blogging so not to much later than yours, but mine is after 8 hours of sleep not before.

I think your quilt top looks pretty good, pretty interesting and pretty colourful!
Looking forward to seeing it finished.

I think your quilt is very pretty, Rose. And vegetable soup sounds good. I love it when the weather is cooler, but our heat index here today was around 100 degrees.

I like getting up about the same time as you do, if I haven't stayed up too late. Last night I was on the computer until 3:30 am, but I managed to get up at 6:30. I haven't had a nap, so I think I'm turning in soon. I'm really getting too old for this! But, there's so much to do and look at and so little time!

Oh Rose, that is BEAUTIFUL!! I love getting up early, I'm with you, if i sleep in I feel like my whole day is wasted.

Way to go, Rose! You are much too modest. Your quilt looks great.

Your work looks very good to me. The vegetable soup sounds so good! I like the early morning and get up early every day. Morning is the BEST time for me.

ANYTHING to do with quilting is pretty to me! :)

Dee said...

I personally find it to be pretty and can not believe you were going to use it just for a backing.... :)

MMmmmm veggie soup. Bob makes the very best soups. He loves soups so we do the same as you. Eat. REheat and freeze. Couldn't be better.
Your quilt is nice--don't sell yourself short.
Love your previous Tennessee posts. I get homesick too---well just for my other house since I am living at Bob's now. Funny lot we are.
I have posted some pics of where we have been. Only a few though. MB

what a good way to rid yourself of scraps from your stash. your quilt is very nice. when it's finished you'll be cozy and warm underneath. i had to laugh when you said you're watching YouTube videos. you can't stop at just one because they're so informative. i find myself looking up lots of things there and hopping from one to the next. your vegetable soup sounds good. if it were a bit cooler outside i wouldn't mind fixing me some too. hope all is well.

I think the quilt is pretty and, like you say, interesting.
