Weekend.........

It's hot here and I have been making a quilt. Crazy I know we should have been at the beach all weekend. We were for some of the time but the other half of it I got to finish Django's quilt top. This is the quilt that is on the January list and I so promised him that I would have it done. Today we have woken up to another gorgeous day but we are on a mission to get some nice light weight batting and find a backing fabric. Now the other thing that is playing around in my mind is do I hand quilt it or machine stitch it. I have never hand quilted anything and would like to try. All the quilts I have made so far have been machine quilted. Quick but not always easy. Maybe I need to ask myself the question 'does he want the quilt this January or next?' Maybe I need to go and sit at the beach and stare out at the beautiful blue water. The answer may come to me.

I'll be back!
