In November of 2000 (!), a dear friend handed me a quilt top that was pieced by her grandmother, and she asked me to quilt it. I bought the fabric for the borders, and then put them with the quilt top in a drawer where they have since resided. (I took the precaution of placing them in a pillow case, with a note pinned to the case saying whom to return it to...you know, just in case I died or something before I got around to it!) About five years ago she came to visit, and I profusely apologized for not having it quilted, and practically begged her to take it back and find someone who would actually get it done for her. She refused...it was me or nobody.
Today was quilting day at the library. And look! The borders are on it! I cannot tell you how many times this has been on my to-do list. But being that this is my Year of Action, there has been real progress made. I was hoping to get it basted today as well, but I talked too much and sewed too slow.
Here are my marching orders to myself...Jan Monthly Goal, 3 Major Weekly Goals, and General To-Do's. It felt SOOOOOOO good to scratch through 'borders on quilt' at long last.
