The quilt should be done, but I was incredibly tired on Saturday so I didn't get much done. I don't know if it was from the flu shot, but every time I sat down I fell asleep. I did finally get the quilting done and the binding attached. I couldn't find the original piece of fabric I had saved all those years ago because I wanted the binding to match the centers. I found a piece that was very close in color and now have one and one half sides to do the hand stitching. The fabric is very easy to push a needle thru so the stitching is going fast. I brought the quilt to work on at lunch in case I can't walk because of rain. It will be done tonight so it will be an October finish!

I had a very busy evening. I replaced the zipper in my hoodie so I could wear it to work today. This job has only needed done for about 5 months and it only took me a half hour. Geeze!

I got about an hour of quilting in last night. I decided to measure the area I had left to quilt and got a big suprise! I am farther along than I thought! I am now 83% done with the quilting or 61.8 square feet done out of 75! Somehow my measuring got off. I circled the area I quilted last night

Thanks to all of you for your encouragement about getting the log cabin quilt finished. I sat down to quilt on it last night and it wasn't as hard as I thought it would be to work on it after being totally sick of quilting on it. I got another 451 square inches quilted so now I am 72% done with the quilting for a total of 54 square feet out of 75 square feet.

My post on Friday morning stated I was 40% done with the quilting which was 30 SF. I now am 68% done with the quilting which is 50.78 square feet. Yes, I quilted a lot this weekend! By the end of Sunday, I was so tired of quilting this quilt. If I can keep the momentum going, I think there is a possibility I could get this quilt done by the 31st of October. I will have to really focus if that is to happen.

I am so glad it is Friday. Last evening I got some quilting done. The log cabin quilt is now 40% quilted which equals to 30 square feet.

I didn't get much more quilted. I couldn't walk at lunch yesterday with the rain and blowing wind so I had to make up for that when I came home. I first did some dishes and somewhat cleaned up the kitchen then I spent a considerable amount of time on the stationary bike. I didn't bother to even figure out my percentage or square footage complete since I got so little done. Here is what I did get quilted.

It always feels good when I get to a corner, get it quilted, and start in another direction. I am now 36% done with the quilting which equates to about 27 square feet. I can't believe next week is the last week in October! I need to spend some serious time quilting this weekend if I plan on having this quilt done by the end of the month. I started quilting this on October 3rd or 4th and so only being 36% done after two weeks doesn't bode well for the possibility of getting this done by the end of the month. After all, the binding will take a day to do. I will give it my best shot!

Let's start with Sunday and work our way back to Friday. I did get some quilting done on the log cabin quilt between two small sewing projects for my brother and laundry. I now have 32% of the quilting done or 23.7 square feet. I had to wind a bunch more bobbins - 26 I think - as I was down to one.
