Hello my lovelies. How have you all been on this beautiful summery sunny day? It’s been a pretty busy day in my little world.
I spent all day in my sewing room working on one thing and another. I kicked off the day with longarm quilting Judith’s quilt. This is a lovely sampler that Judith pieced but did not feel capable of quilting it using her domestic sewing machine. So she parcelled it up and posted it to me. I chose the lovely curvaceous Cloud Nine quilting design by Patricia Ritter and an Eau de Nil colour thread. This is how it looks like now.
Once Judith’s quilt was done I went on to adding borders to another simple Jelly Roll quilt. I learned yesterday that my favourite charity desperately needs quilts for boys of all ages. So since I had one on the go that only needed borders, I decided to get that done. And I then went on to load said quilt top into my longarm quilting system. I hope to get the quilt longarm quilted tomorrow. I think the quilting will make this simple quilt look great. I have auditioned thread colours and I chose a slate grey which blends in beautifully with the fabrics. I will decide what design to use in the morning.
After getting all that done I still had a little bit of time left before it was time to make my evening meal. So I decided to start cutting up fabric to piece the next border on my Foundation Paper Pieced project. As it stands at the moment my little quilt measures 24” square. Ideally I would like to add another row of squares before adding a last border of the rich red fabric. This little quilt will make a really nice table topper. I haven’t decided how to quilt this project yet. I don’t think I have time to hand quilt it so I guess I will have to settle for machine quilting. I’m looking forward to seeing how this one looks when it’s finished.
So it’s been another very good day in happy longarm quilter land. I kept busy from the time I opened my eyes right thru until the 6 o’clock news. I hope to spend the evening unwinding doing something relaxing.
So for this evening, this very happy longarm quilter will be doing some fine hand appliqué work. I hope you have a super cosy evening doing something that makes you happy. Until you read me again,
Happy stitching. ♥ ♥
