Once I started, I cut out the remaining fabrics for the Christmas Gift. I even cut out some extra fabrics so that I can play with it until I'm happy with it. No pictures though, because it is a Christmas gift.
Since I started late and pressing was involved a bit, that's as far as I got by my planned break time. Sigh.
After the break I assembled two more rows of the Guest Bed Quilt and attached the first four rows together. And, yes, I have a picture!
Note that what you see is the width of the quilt going up (or down, depending on where you are standing, I guess) the stairs. There will be a total of 13 rows when it is completed.
Apparently I quilt much more slowly than I thought, because that is all I got done in my allotted quilting time. (I keep telling myself that it is because of the pressing that I forgot to plan for, but I don't really believe it.) No hand quilting got done, but that's okay because today is a church quilting day and there will be plenty of hand quilting happening. Just not on my quilt.
Yesterday's moment of triumph: Before sewing the first long seam, I decided to check the bobbin because I thought it might be getting low. There was about three inches (maybe even less) on the bobbin.
