Ready to quilt.

I finished the backing for this quilt today and it is now pinned and ready for quilting. I made this quilt top way back in July so its about time I got onto the quilting!! I put it on hold to complete my zig zag quilt and the wonky log cabin quilt. I love this quilt already so I'm very eager to get started on the quilting. Not sure how I'm going to quilt it yet. Hopefully I'll get an epiphany when I sit down at my machine!

These 4 parcels arrived in the mail today. So exciting to get parcels in the mail so to receive 4 in one day was pretty cool.

These are the lovely colourful scraps that came out of the above parcels. I can't wait to start this quilt.

My daughter Amelia and I are going to the "New Moon" movie on Friday afternoon so I have been reading this book at every opportunity to get it finished before I saw the movie. Amelia has read all 4 books twice now so you could say she's a bit of a fan. They are aimed at teenage readers but I've gotta say I'm hooked and can't wait to start the 3rd in the series " Eclipse" which will be tonight.

Sneak peek of quilt looks lovely Catherine! Can't wait to see it done :) I'm obviously not an expert, but I often read people decide to do something swirly/round if there's a lot of squares? But I am sure you'll come up with something exciting :)
As for the mail, isn't this swap bringing back 'the joy of the envelope' :) Loving it!

Four packages in one day! How fun! Your quilt looks really pretty. I can't wait to see more!

Nice, cheerful-looking quilt! I know many adults, including myself, who have enjoyed the Twilight books.
