Today I woke up in the mood to quilt. I already had the backing pinned on so all I had to do was load the top on and get going. I did a BIG meander and got done fast! I had about 280 inches of binding already made from coffee quilt #1. I usually always over estimate the amount of binding I will need - by a lot, obviously! I went ahead and added 40 more inches just to be safe. Got it all machined on by about 1 p.m. Even the label is on!!! Since I have no patience as far as giving gifts, especially really good gifts, I went ahead and gave it to DH. He loves it, especially when he saw that I had used all the coffee scraps in it. He also likes the name - "Leftover Coffee". DH usually makes one or two pots of hot coffee per week. The rest of the week he drinks the leftovers as iced coffee. This is where the name comes from and the fact that I was able to use up most of my leftover coffee fabric scraps.
I have heard from a lot of people about my NO-BUY resolution for the new year. See yesterday's post if you have no idea what I am talking about. So far it looks like Joanne, Judy, Sharon, Finn and me are ready to take the no-buy vow. Not sure what would happen if we did buy something "illegal". Maybe that's where the quilt police come in to play! Anyone else want to join us?
