Today started very early. Bonnie Hunter's Carolina Christmas top was assembled (in my case Mardi Gras). Tonight and tomorrow, the borders will be added. The colors chosen were purple, green and gold against a black background.
Around 1:00, my sister Phyllis joined the party. She brought the coolest little gadget called the "Knifty Knitter". She brought 3 hats already made and started another one for my demonstration. I have to get one of those things.
We then started pulling from the stash to start a baby quilt. Using the split nine-patch, this bright top was finished while we watched the New Orleans Saints stomp the Arizona Cardinals (so sorry). The first border has been added and the pieced border is being auditioned. We hope to finish this top tomorrow so it can be quilted. Both of us have the day off Monday, so our quiltathon will continue into overtime. (If anyone knows who designed the "split nine-patch", please let me know and I will add the information).
