Happy Monday my lovelies. I hope you’re all had a good productive day. It’s been a super fine day in happy longarm quilter land. I stepped out first thing this morning to do some banking but the rest of the day was spent crafting. I started off my crafty morning by longarm quilting Sandra’s Churn Dash quilt.
Sandra left the choice of quilting design and thread colour up to me. So I chose Cloud Nine by Patricia Ritter and a lovely fine cream thread. I believe this is Sandra’s first quilt and a she’s done a very good job of it. I’m sure this quilt will be cherished for many years to come.
Then I went on to load Ann’s Irish Chain quilt. Ann has chosen a design called Hall of Mirrors by Apricot Moon and a beige thread. At the moment my plan is to start quilting in the morning.
Yesterday I mentioned that I would like to make a couple of patchwork Christmas stockings. I still had a bit of time left after I finished my longarm quilt and so I managed to piece these two stockings this afternoon. I will layer them up and do some Freemotion Quilting tomorrow. This design comes from an ancient Thimbleberries book. I’ve always love this stocking pattern so I searched until I found the right book and used the design. I’m quite excited about this project.
All my Christmas Surprise classes are finished now. So I can finally show you the project my ladies worked on…..
This hexagon log cabin was a really fun project to work on. This project includes partial seams, machine quilting and Prairie Points (optional). All the ladies got their project done in the one session which is rather refreshing. So now you know.
It’s been a brilliant day in my little world. I worked on a few different things with success. I managed to put in a little bit of planning time by choosing a few fabrics for a project which I designed yesterday. I love days like this. It looks like the next few days might also be quite productive as the weatherman is predicting bad weather. So it looks like I might have to batten down the hatches and settle in for the duration.
So for this evening, this very happy longarm quilter will probably layer up some Christmas stocking in readiness for Freemotion Quilting. I hope you have a super cosy evening doing something festive that makes you very happy. Until you read me again,
Happy stitching. ♥ ♥
