Update

King size quilt is almost done--16 out 19 rows complete!!! I'm somewhat proud of myself and a little unsure about the next step. I do not have a walking foot yet, it's on the list but not yet. And even if I did I don't think my regular sewing machine is up for the job. Do I simply tie it or do I go through the effort of hand quilting it? Somewhat torn on the matter. Any thoughts?

In other news, my baby is walking!!! Actually walking across rooms and standing up all by herself and talking--granted it's baby talk but mixed with her signs she's somewhat understandable...
We played Ring around the Rosy today (Charlotte's request) and because Zoey was holding mine and Zac's hands she was stable enough to do it and had a blast. I think it kind of weirded her out that Mommy and Daddy "fell" down too but as long as we laughed she did too.

She fails to mention that it was a bassinet sized quilt that she quilted lol. ;) I think that if you were to get a walking foot your sewing machine would (should?) be find to do it on...it might be a bit of a pain in the you know where, but I think it's doable.
Thanks for coming over today!

your sewing machine should definitely be up to the job, but you could tie it and quilt it as you have the time.........

Tie it.

And in the time you've saved, start another quilt!
