here is a little quilt i made ages ago with 4 orphan nine patches
Thank you all for your encouragement while I'm tackling the King sized George quilt. I have worked on it every day this week.
I am sad to report that many of your concerns about my marking choice was well founded!! Many of the lines have worn off before I got to them :(
boo hoo boo hoo boo hoo and also ^@#(* and also $#%@&%^&^!!!!!!!
Needs Must - Right? So while sitting at the machine I am remarking some sections. You can see to the left where few lines are visible.
Sometimes I have are mark the ENTIRE CABLE - now you might think me crazy for using the chalk here, but it's the fastest and best way with the batting and backing behind it.
Oh, the humanity, unpinning all the pins, marking, then pinning again before continuing......
Thank goodness Pride and Prejudice was on demand. I like to watch movies that I've seen before. I can just listen until it's time to watch the ending or a great scene.
I'm back in the "cockpit" - here is my set up. The quilt is being held up by my big ironing board which I lower to match the sewing cabinet height.
I'm even employing my quilt filing drawer to hold the pin bucket, the all important REMOTE CONTROL, lol. What my big scissors are doing there, I can't say.
I sewed between 5 and 6 hours 5 days this week and finished 7 out of the 13 columns of quilting. Whew!
I'm loving how it looks and feels.
Now to prep the second half for quilting. I'll start that tomorrow, in the meantime I'm off to the movies for a treat.
Fun For Friday:
What's better than my daughter finding a clearance dress for $10.00 at the outlet mall?
