Big Bertha is Finished



Yes folks, Big Bertha is finished. Had her all clipped to the clothesline real nice and as I went to click the picture, a very slight breeze blew in and sent it waving but it's the best picture I could get today.

I now know why Karen called the quilt "BIG" Bertha...this gal is huge!!! Now I need to get a backing for it and figure out how it should be quilted.

And just in case you were wondering...Yes, I do work, but I've been off for 2 days with the itchy scratchies on the backs of both legs. Went for blood work this morning to determine whether the bumpies are from a virus associated with the head cold I have or chicken pox. I say it's a virus but the good doc will let me know tomorrow...

I got yet, 2 more quilts back yesterday that need bindings attached so I think I best devote a little time to them today and get the bindings done...the tacking down can get done while I'm vegging in front of the TV at night.

Peggy, I don't know how you do it. I can barely sew those lap quilts together. I'm so very impressed. And big Bertha is beautiful!

WOW....you got that done really quick! I hope you feel better soon. I shudder to ask this, but does the doctor think you might have shingles??? (The minute I was old enough to get the vaccine to prevent that, I got it...and I do mean the MINUTE I turned 60!!!) I know you aren't old enough yet for the shot....but I'm hoping your itchy is from something minor and will be gone in another day or so.
