First, Grace, my almost 10 year old granddaughter, made a quilt from a jelly roll. She sewed her little heart out. She wanted her name on it, so I found some letters on the web that she liked and we are now ready to quilt. There is a little problem there. I don't know exactly how and what I'm going to do, but here it is all sandwiched. She even helped me do this!
Carole at Ewe's Quilting got to feeling better after her cancer treatment, and she got caught up with Curly Top. I was so excited. I have one more block to iron down before I start the applique. I changed the tractor to look like our Gator since little Ruby loves the Gator like crazy. I am using all stash for this, and it hurts my feelings sometimes since there are so many bright fabrics I'd like to use.
Here is what I want to work on now....
- Finish the Curly Top blocks and begin the machine applique
- Finish the quilt that Holly and I are making and get it sandwiched.
- Do 3 more rows for the Row by Row quilt (see upper right margin) and call it a day on that one. This might be the first one I try to quilt.
- Get the last Comfort and Joy block done and start on borders
- Practice the free motion patterns I've decided to try.
- Start some secret Christmas stuff!!!
I'm planning a trip to Atlanta to the quilt show in September. I'm going to check out the longarms, but something tells me I'm not going to want to pay what they cost. Does anyone have one they just love? I'd love to hear about it! Pretty please!
