WIP Wednesday Quilting

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!
We are headed to my Grandmother's home for our family meal, and this is what my husband had to say about that:

Him:  Where are we eating this year?
Me:  At Grandma's house.
Him:  Oh, good, because then we just show up.
Me:  Uhhhh
Him:  And sleep in.
Me:  Well, maybe SOME of us do!
Him:  Well, you still have to make food and cart it over there and make the pies, but I get to sleep in.
Me:  I'll let you know which special pie is yours.  

And now, because I have been sewing this week, I am linking up with Freshly Pieced  for a mid week"what'cha workin on?" post.

WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced

I've been quilting on this every night this week

I pieced the back one night, which I don't have a photo of yet

Quilting this mammoth, I'll have to measure when it's complete later today

Bubble quilting in the blank areas, not sure what what I will do inside the circles, maybe more circles

More to go!  But optimistic this will be done today.

Mary, your conversation reminded me of a Thanksgiving dinner a few years ago. We had invited a friend of my DH's, who is single, and as we sat down to eat, he said "Thanksgiving is really a do nothing day, isn't it?". At that point, I understood why he was single.

Have a Happy Thanksgiving - and don't work too hard!

lol to Colleen's comment. Mary, this is a really cool quilt! Love the bubble quilting. Echoes in the circles would be great (I think that's what you were saying might happen).
