Do I seem to be on a roll lately? Lots and lots of quilting……yes I am! I have been having a lot of fun quilting up old UFOs and also new projects. Of course having internet that doesn’t seem to work worth a darn is a great incentive for quilting. I have not done a very good job lately on visiting other blogs and commenting……it seems like I am very lucky to get a post up and after all the time it takes…..and frustration….I just get off and head for a quilt. I don’t mean to complain….that is just the way our service works.
Anyway back to UFOs!! This is one I made a year or two ago and didn’t really care for the way it looked when I finished it……the colors all seemed to blend together. Well Sunday afternoon after Mother’s Day lunch and a little shopping……I needed a quilt top that I wouldn’t feel bad if the quilting wasn’t very good on it…….
The size of the finished quilt is 36 x 46 so I was able to use the cute and old kitty fabric for the back.
I don’t know if you can see the quilting on the back or not. The quilt is nice and flat….there are quite a few long lines of quilting instead of my usual curly stipples…..hmmmm I wonder why.
We have a new/old toy set up in the living room!!! I think I am starting to take over the entire house. Builder Bob has been telling me to set this up out here for quite awhile……I kept waiting for him to build me a bigger room…..for now it is here.
You’re going to have to wait for more info on this as I just spent the last 2 days working on Easy Street which is a huge quilt and…..it just fit on this frame. Notice the sewing machine……..yes! It is one of my 15-91 Singer sewing machines and I am having a lot of fun! A domestic machine!
I’m not going to talk about the machine that I bought with this quilt frame. Okay, I will say that I have never been able to do free motion quilting with the machine even when it wasn’t set up on the frame. Would you believe I have had this for 2 years and this is the first time I have set it up and actually used it! I’ll have to take pictures of the table that Builder Bob made for me on Sunday.
I’ll be sharing more info soon! Today I have to take Builder Bob’s computer in for updates and then see about getting mine fixed. My laptop evidently has been opened and closed too many times and right now I can’t open it all the way without losing the screen. This started happening gosh…..a couple months ago but I keep putting off taking it in as I’ll be without my computer for a couple days. Now if I could really get organized I could get some posts all done and you would never even know I wasn’t around…………that just isn’t going to happen.
