Ready to Start Quilting

24 12 2010

I spent an absurd amount of time pin-basting the Christmas Cactus Quilt top Wednesday night.  My knees are still not happy with me at the moment.

However, I’m super thrilled with myself.

I had stockpiled a couple of queen-sized battings this month while Joann’s had their 80/20 batting on sale for 50%.  I used one of them for the CCQ top last night.

This means that 100% of this quilt will have been produced from my stash!!

Ok, so really, like, 99% because Thursday night I had to buy matching thread for quilting it.  I’m hoping to be able to get a start on it this weekend, but we’ll see.  I’m off Christmas Day, but I think Zeb will want to spend time with the Momma he hasn’t seen much of since the holiday season started in earnest.  Then I work Sunday through Friday.

I’m still debating the name for this quilt, though I am leaning toward Sandi’s idea of including ‘reflection’ in the title somehow.

However, I am reminded ever so slightly, of the image that you see to the left, of that vibrantly colored orchid.

“Mutant Orchid Reflected”?

Too weird?

I think I like it. I’ll have to mull over it for a day or two…
