Lorraine's Anchors Aweigh

You know the worst part of taking the weekend off?  Well, let me tell you, it is easily the Monday following your weekend off!  Friday night I loaded Lorraine's quilt on the frame and basted it so it would be ready to go for early Saturday morning quilting.  Then... LIFE jumped up and grabbed me.  No, I'm not complaining at all, I thoroughly enjoyed a wonderful weekend with my family.  I even dangled my feet in the pool for more than a few minutes!

So we'll fast forward to this morning -- catch up!  Yep, today was quilt my tushy off to try and catch up to my way-behind-if-you-can-even-still-call-it-a-schedule.  I am striving to conquer this behind-ness, my poor post-it notes are barely even sticking anymore.  You know they've been moved one too many times!

So I quilted off an on all day on Lorraine's "Anchors Aweigh" quilt (pattern by Tula Pink), and then when my normal quilting time rolled around I quilted like a mad-woman.  And this is what happened:

Wow,what a mess in the background!  See, I really need to catch up before all those quilts decide to hop out of those boxes!  It's beginning to look more like a mail room than a quilting studio!

And since I finished this quilt late tonight (or tomorrow morning - depending how you view 12am), these are the best pictures you're going to get:

I think it turned out super cool - hope Lorraine likes it!

Oh, and I did manage to run outside and snap an awesome picture of the little bit of sun I saw today as it was going away:


  1. YES, I LOVE IT!!

  2. Beautiful quilting! Perfect for that quilt!

  3. Love the quilting designs you did on the quilt...it was a perfect match for the quilt pattern.....

  4. I already love that quilt pattern and your quilting just completes it beautifully. Looks amazing!!

  5. The swirls are a good touch, but I especially like the pattern you used in the gray area. I like the wavy lines and circles. Very interesting
