Challenge Day 10

It's day 10 of my 31 Day Challenge.  I'm happy to say my headache was no more this morning!!  I was sure sluggish though, amazing what a little caffeine does!

I got two more of Karen's quilts done today.  They were bigger than I thought and so it felt like they took longer than her others.

I just adore this fabric and did a freehand daisy~swirl on it.  This quilting takes a bit longer than some of the others I've done....but it was so fitting for the quilt.  After putting the binding on and trimming it off the machine, I loaded another one:

 This was also fun with a lot of fun fabrics.  I did the pantograph "spiral square" on it.  One of my favorite panto's!


...and another binding to go on.  

Another reason why I think these are going slower than I would like is probably the fact that I'm doing the binding also.
Probably ;o)

...okay, looks like Karen's quilts are being pushed to Monday now.  I still have 4 more to quilt up, add bindings and then stitch all of the 12 quilts bindings down....and to think I was going to try to do these in 3 days.... HA!!!  

I am really proud of myself though, I've really tried hard to stay on quilting~task and keep at it.  There are ton's of interruptions around my house, but I've managed to go back and continue quilting from where I left off.  Did someone mention a "MASSAGE", that's sounding really good about now.

Both beautiful! Love the spiral daisies! Yes a massage would be good, alternatively a long hot shower :)

Amanda said...

I love the daisy swirl quilting! It's beautiful and matches so well!

Nancy Hart said...

Wow, I am blown away by the beautiful work you do! You inspire me to get in my craft/sewing room and get more of my projects completed! Even just sitting down and organizing my beading station! Keep up the great work and YES you do deserve a massage!!! :o)

I love the daisy freehand, too! What a cute pattern. You should seriously design pantographs for those of us who are "challenged". . . with all of your extra time, of course. : )

Thanks for more inspiration!

I have so enjoyed your challenge journey! I have not gotten a hang of putting the bindings on with my longarm, guess I need more practice. I use the Ditch foot when sewing it to the back, works like a dream I can go so much faster using that. I have a pic on my blog http://knitbug2.blogspot.com/2012/04/i-just-gotta-say-i-really-like-my-ditch.html?showComment=1337694507772#c253619808772805735

Karen Walker said...

I'm surprised you gave up coffee during your challenge. That's a challenge all in itself! :) glad your headache subsided! Love the daisy swirl.

Awesome job! To tell the truth you picked a crazy time to quit caffeine. I could never have given up my tea in the middle of that! It just goes to show how strong you are. Keep it up and rest up tomorrow and enjoy your day. Maybe you should disappear and get a pedicure to help you relax and reward yourself?

The daisies look really great, especially on that fabric...

regan said...

Those flowers match that fabric so well.....I was lost in it! Fabulous quilting! And yes.....get a massage! You deserve it! :o)

Mama Pea said...

I love that red and turquoise one. And the quilting you did on it is spectacular. I should think to give my quilter my binding and have her put it on for me. Makes so much sense!

Molly said...

Have you tried sewing on binding with your longarm? I am just experimenting with it. It might save you some time? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BnJStsH7pdQ

Thanks for sharing all of your quilting! I love to get inspired by what you do!
