Well it was back to the old grind for this happy longarm quilter today. The run up to Christmas has officially started for me. I loaded June’s quilt into my longarm quilting system last week. So first thing this morning I clicked go and I set off on another adventure longarm quilting June’s elongated hexagon quilt. June left the choice of quilting designs up to me. So I chose Flirtacious designed by Irene Steele of Timeless Quilting Designs and a lovely fine natural colour thread. Flirtacious just sits quietly in the background so you can pay attention to the piecing and fabrics. After working on this quilt all day I feel the need to work on some elongated hexagons! I hope to get the binding done tomorrow.
The first “A” is for Applique August block photo arrived in my inbox this afternoon. The theme for August is Welcome. As usual Donna has done fab job with her block……
I have to put my hand up and admit that mine is not done yet. I have had that much going on lately that all I have is ideas on paper for which I have not connected the dots yet. So you can guess what I’m going to be working on this evening…..
Apart from a dentist appointment and a flying visit to the post office to collect three parcels which we missed on Saturday, I spent all day in my sewing room longarm quilting. Over the last few days I have been listening to a Bernard Cornwell story called Sharpe’s Fury. Longarm quilting can be a solitary occupation so audio books are super for alleviating the loneliness.
The next quilt to be given the happy quilter treatment is pieced using Liberty Tana Lawn fabric and consists of hundreds of 1” squares. It’s another rather large quilt which will take a couple of days to work thru. I hope to bring you a progress report about that in a few days.
So for this evening, this very happy longarm quilter will be putting her feet up and doing a bit of whimsical applique work and finalising a Welcome Block for “A” is for Applique. I hope you spend your evening doing something splendid. Until you read me again,
Happy stitching. ♥ ♥
