I finished the quilt top. Woo-hoo! And yes, folks, it's a big one. Not quite big enough for my king size bed, but it will certainly fit my daughter's double--or even a queen, I think.
I ordered some fabric online today that I want to use for the backing, so hopefully I'll be getting the Ghastlies pinned for quilting by the end of the week. I'll try to get a better photo once I have it all laid out on the tables. In the meantime, I've begun quilting this one:
I've decided to outline the red pinwheels and then I'll go back and meander in the cream colored sections.
I was a little distracted today by this book:
I finished it by early afternoon, which meant I could finally get something done! I highly recommend it. I'm not sure whether the book ended a little too quickly because I honestly feel a bit more time should have been devoted to telling us what happened after the central events or whether I just didn't want it to end. But the ending DID feel a little bit rushed. Still, an excellent story. What books have you enjoyed during the past month or two?
