Thanks to my friend JoAnn, I get to remove this one from my list of PIGS (projects in grocery sacks).
This quilt has been pieced for years, but somehow, never made it to the long arm.
A few years back, I talked my friend JoAnn, into taking my old HQ frame. The very first one that came out for home machine quilters. That one you taped down to a table top and set your domestic sewing machine on. I was so captivated with it at the time... but the frame was not very sturdy and was less that great to work with. JoAnn had an interest in quilting, but wasn't quite sure...after playing on it a bit, her hubby worked over the frame and made it stronger, but she soon grew out of it. Now 4 machines later for her... (it's not my fault JoAnn), she is a fabulous free motion quilter. I have never really navigated out of pantographs on my longarm, so yes, I can say I'm a little jealous!
Look at all this gorgeous quilting...
I love the flowers with the cross hatching in the centers.
And all those fun little pebbles!
All topped off with these cool funky feathers in the border.
You can see just why, I jumped at the chance when she was looking for a quilt to practice on. LOL!!
So JoAnn, if your reading this...I've got more on my list of things to do!
It is finally happening. My studio is getting those badly needed repairs... but that leave me with no place to play! At least not my usual place. I've been moved to the kitchen table for the duration of those repairs! Heck no one needs to eat around here anyway! LOL!
What to do, what to do?
I recently saw one of my fellow bloggers, SeaSide Stitches post named "Drowning in Scraps".
