Too late for too many words

Ever seen a quilt that is so ugly that it's sort of beautiful?  Well this would be the one.  It's a quilt top that I got at GoodWill for $1.. yep.. one dollar.. and possibly worth maybe 1/2 that much!  But in my eyes it's beautiful.. a beautiful victim that is.  It will be the sacrificial lamb of this longarm virgin.. oh my goodness.. this will be my ~first~

I could not bear the idea of racking up anything that I had just pieced.. I want those!.. so this my victim candidate!


Here I am exuding my obvious natural midnight beauty as I finished pinning the backing to the leader.  The backing was another lucky victim candidate from the thrift store... 1970's harvest gold percale.. it's going to be a match made in heaven made even better by the poor quality batting the I dug out of the cabinet... I can tell you are jealous.. quit drooling on the keyboard.. it's my first quilt and you can't have it!


Running a tension test on the side strip right before the cat ran in and tore a big hunk out of the batting that was hanging down ( i call tell that the cats are going to be a HUGE help)..
but now it's time to go to bed.. can't even focus on the screen... more details tomorrow.

P.S.  Sorry about all the typos last night.. I should NEVER post at 1am!
