Top done and backing pieced all ready

The row quilt is all done except for the quilting. As you can see the fabric is Firemen oriented. This was a stripe and I cut it ll apart to get the quilt to be what it is. I used almost every inch of a almost 3 yard piece in this quilt top. The last borders were sewn on this morning and pressed. I pieced the back and it is ready to be sandwiched. Then I got to thinking the kids are coming this weekend so I have to hide this one until after they leave.

These two kids like to look for Christmas gifts so I am trying to be real secretive this years so they can't find it.

I am going to go to town and pay some bills and then I am going to get the back sewn for the Spidey quilt and sandwich it today. I can work on that one while this set of Grandkids is here.

The batting is laying out to get the compaction creases out of it and then I will be pinning for awhile today. Have to clean my machine and get it all ready for a round of machine quilting. Chris
