It’s been a pretty productive day in happy longarm quilter land. Slowly but surely I’m getting back in the longarm quilting zone. I spent most of the day working on Joan’s quilt…….
Joan had narrowed the quilting designs down to two; Cloud Nine and Wave on Wave leaving the final decision up to me. This morning when I flashed up my quilting system I decided to go with Cloud Nine by Patricia Ritter and a fine midnight blue thread. I’m quite pleased with how this quilt has turned out.
On days like today when I work on nice quilts, I feel like making quilts for myself. However I have more quilts than one small family can use in a lifetime. So I guess I should start planning other Quilts for Comfort. I think there will never be too many of those.
I recently heard about another quilting challenge. Melanie at Catbird Quilt Studio is running a Medallion Sew-Along. So why not pop over and have a look. I think I might join in this challenge. Melanie has provided plenty of points to consider when making a Medallion quilt and there’s even free instructions for a centre block to get you started. I think this is a great challenge and goodness knows I have enough fabric in my stash to participate. So watch this space.
It’s been a lovely day here in the northeast of England. We had plenty of sunshine and the temperature was reasonable. I’m so pleased to have been able to finish Joan’s quilt today. Tomorrow I plan on loading June’s quilt but first I have to unsandwich it. June got her quilt ready to quilt it herself but I think after seeing how big it is she changed her mind. It can be quite daunting hand or machine quilting a double bed size quilt. June spent a long time EPP this elongated hexagon quilt, so why not go the extra mile and have it professionally longarm quilted. I hope to bring you progress photos later this week.
Well it looks like I have a pretty busy week ahead of me. I have appointments, longarm quilting, teaching a class and meeting some friends for a sewing session. So far the only day I have that’s not booked up is Sunday which I usually set aside as a quiet day for catching up at home. I’m hoping my Sarah steps in to help a bit this week.
So for this evening, this very happy longarm quilter will be working on EPP hexagons. I hope you enjoy whatever you decide to do this evening. Until you read me again,
Happy stitching. ♥ ♥
