Grandmother's Choice Revisited
Finally got around to putting the first border on Grandmother's Choice. The top is hanging upside down on the wall, but you get the idea.
Today I also was able to get the backing pieced for Argyle Christmas. The batting is in the dryer as I type this. Normally I am not a pre-washer, but Sue Garman wrote a post once about why she always washes and dries the batting, so now I follow suit. Basically the batting gets tossed into the shortest setting available on my washing machine and is run through the cycle. No detergent is added as it isn't dirty. Then into the dryer before sandwiching the quilt. Tomorrow is scheduled for sandwiching Argyle Christmas and starting on the machine quilting.
