The second is a QOV. This is my first QOV and the first time I've used a pantograph. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. I used Jodi Beamish's panto Patriot. It's stars and ribbons. I also used a variegated red, white & blue thread that I've had in my stash for a couple years. I'm going to send this one to Alycia from Alycia Quilts for her 100 quilt goal for the transitional rehab center at Fort Carson.
So, I'll work on the bindings on these while watching tv this evening and probably at QB's on Tuesday.
Next up is the wedding quilt, Chinese Coins and then I'll probably have to do that secret project from last week. After that, there's always the BQ shower curtain that's been waiting 2 years to be quilted.

While browsing a "new to us" store recently, we came across this bottle and for some reason, my husband felt that we just HAD to try it. Yes, the name really is "Quilter's Irish Death". It was far too dark for my taste, but he liked it. So, if you're ever looking for different types of beers and you happen to be in the Seattle area, you really must check out 99 Bottles.
As for quilty things, I've been working on a rush, secret project. Can't say anything more at this time. But, if all goes as planned, it should work out quite nicely. You'll just have to stay tuned.

Thank goodness for those tranquilizers the vet gave us. Now we just have to get through the holiday weekend.
My goal is to load and quilt at least ONE of the three quilt tops currently awaiting quilting.
