a quilt top, will it be quilted in time?

I have finished the quilt top for Isabelle’s travel quilt. The question is - can I layer and quilt it tomorrow (Thrusday) night? The trick is I have to pack too. We leave Friday, straight after our IVF nurse consult. The binding will be stitched down by hand so it can happen in the car, but the layering and quilting has to happen tomorrow night or the quilt won’t be coming with us.

The Debbie Bliss Cabled Jacket will definitely be coming with us and I hope to finally get some photos over the weekend. All I need is a second pair of hands, some daylight and perhaps some nice scenery…

Jo, I’m so glad you just posted about the needles because when you came up on Bloglines, it reminded me that I meant to come back and comment about the quilt and the sweater! I almost keeled over when I saw the photo of the sweater, gashed across! You are so brave! (It’s beautiful and so worthy of getting *right*.)
And the quilt is lookin good..and looks like it will be so cuddly!
You deserve a nice trip and change of pace. Hope it’s wonderful!

Lovely to meet you the other day at Zs place Jo, and might I just reiterate that your DB jacket looks fabulous! I can’t imagine being half as patient as you have been with this project. If it was mine, it probably never would have been finished, and even if it had been, it would now be in the back of the closet (due to my tendency, when noticing a mistake, to be overly optimistic and say ‘it’ll be fine, no-one will notice…’). Have a great break : )

Oh that looks so soft and cozy. Now you’ve inspired me to make one too. I think few but big squares is the way to go ;-)
