I plan on using Wednesday and Thursday to not only finish the boys' quilts but to get caught up on the mystery quilt. I made a list of each unit I still need to sew and cut all the pieces for each clue and have them clipped together. Well, I didn't cut all of them, Paul took mercy on me and pitched in cutting clue 4 out for me. My arm was starting to get tired. I shouldn't have to stop at all though to cut until the new clue comes out on Friday.
I wanted to share with you though what I focused on this weekend and that is grandson number 2's quilt. Grandson number 1's quilt will be similar with the non-tractor fabric switched out. Grandson number 3 will get his quilter later but his will be made out of the leftovers from the other two. Since we are a massively blended family we wanted these to be a little symbolic even if the boys are too young to understand right now. The brown fabric is actually the backing fabric from their stepdad's quilt. We wanted to tie all three of them together. Paul did something similar for grandson number 3's quilt.
I know on QuiltCam yesterday Bonnie asked for machine binding tips. I hate putting quilt binding on. I struggled for so long until I saw someone doing a pin free drunkard's path. I played around with using Elmer's glue to attach the binding and it works. If you struggle check it out, there's even a video to show how I do it.
I'm linking up to Bonnie's link up. If you are coming over from there I want to thank you for stopping by the quilting room. You are always welcome to sit for a bit and there's usually a pot of coffee in the kitchen.
