What I am working on

I have been looking for a pattert for a lovely pink Moda Jelly Roll I got for my birthday. On day, while resting my badly squeezed finger, I looked through some of my books and found this pattern. I found one this book called Garden Trellis.

My pink version looks like this. I need about 1,6 meter of additional fabric for frame and binding. I might take a trip to my local quiltstore today.

I have signed up for May Britt and Kris' WISP challange. This will be my first WISP to finish this year. I finished the top in May 2008. Yesterday I tacked the layers together (top, batting and backing).

I used my new tool Micro Stitch . Well, new or new, I bought it in August but have not tested it earlier. You know, one of those Got to Have tools! Anyway it worked nicely for keeping the layers together. I'll give my coments on how it works in quilting process.

And my finger ? It's blue, green and yellow and healing slowly.

Take care and watch your fingers!

Hugs from Nancy

Hey, blue, green and yellow -- a mini-quilt on your finger! I'm glad to hear it's getting better. Your pink quilt is very pretty!

Finger changing colour is a good thing - yellow should mean it's healing :o) Good to hear it's better! Hope it's fit for fight again soooon!

Anyways, it looks like you are able to do some quilty stuff :o) LOVE your star quilt, and way to go on the pink jelly!!

Mmmm... I have heard good things about those tacking-thingys, please let us know what you think!

Take care! Hugs and stitches...
