Planking in the sewing nook!
When I last shared with you this wall was not quite half done...we've gone to the top now, and have started on the adjacent wall:
It's coming along!
There are still 2 walls left to be done in here, and then of course all of the staining and rimming out. It's a winter-long project, but it is such an amazing transformation from cheap bead board paneling to REAL plank walls.
Before I headed home:
Borders went on THIS!
And I switched machines to stay stitch around the edges.
Stay stitching keeps all of those string piano keys from popping open, and helps minimize stretch in the quilting process. I only switched machines because I was in a time crunch, and after a week of treadling, my LEGS were tired! The 301 does 1300 stitches a minute and I had that border stay-stitched in no time.
Loaded in the machine at home!
There is no moss gathering under my feet!
It's not a very large quilt by my normal standards, and I want something to bind on over the weekend, so I will finish the quilting today before I head up to the cabin after tomorrow's Allietare clue 4 goes live!
If you missed Quilt-Cam from last night, you can find it in the archives under the Quilt-Cam tab at the top of the blog.
I've got something special reserved for tonight's post, so be sure to come back and check on that!

Have a great Thursday, everyone!
