Tonight is the Moonlight Quilter's Guild meeting, but I'm not close to finishing the chair. I spent most of the weekend driving from errand to errand, it seems, and being frustrated at every turn. The cheap paint scraper I bought kept dropping the blade on the ground (while I was on the ladder). Chrome decided that Continental Airlines is not a safe site and shut itself down loosing all my data twice. I had to fall back on IE. Horrors! But I did finally get the Honduras trip booked.
I got to the Chair at 7 pm last night. As I feared, quilting the entire chair outline first made for some bumps and tucks as I tried to do the inside. Plus the thread kept breaking or tangling. I hated the way the taupe colored Metrolene showed up on the orange so I ripped that out a few times. I finally quit in frustration and switched to free-motion quilting the background, which went much better, for a while. Then that started tangling too.
So that's as far as I am. I don't know what the protocol for show and tell is, if I should not bring an incomplete piece... I'll take it and see if I need to hide it under my seat.
I did have one inspiration after I got it all re-ironed out. Since it is an upholstered CHAIR I can add some additional puffy batting into the spots that are too loose, and give it more thickness.
Maybe I'll get to come home at lunch! I'm meeting A. at 5:00 for dinner before the meeting, so there's no time left.
