So far, I'm right on schedule:
#1 is a mystery quilt I pieced early in the year. It went to a friend who hooked up the new TV/DVD in my sewing room. Phillip's daughter sent me a really cute photo of him sleeping under this quilt!
My Little Sailor (MLS) was the quilt-holder for this photo, and he persuaded Oliver to pose also!
#2 is a baby quilt for a friend of MLS. She recently became a Grandma, and MLS did some of the quilting. This is our first attempt at quilting spirals!
Here is a closeup of my quilting design. I need to learn how to quilt the sashing and the blocks without starting and stopping at each block --
Yesterday's quilt is one I test-sewed for the designer. I experimented with Denyse Schmidt's signature quilting pattern, but it made the sashing curve unevenly. Next time I will be more careful about keeping the edges taut while I'm quilting.
This pattern is not as easy to quilt as it looks!
Ann says the only way to get better at quilting on the long-arm is to quilt on the long arm!
