Longarm quilting!



Long time, no blog! :( I've been very busy learning how to use Tin Lizzie Ansley and Shirley Stitcher II. I am very happy to announce, that we're getting there....and I'm quilting on a real live quilt! My sample books are all finished, although I certainly will add more to them as time goes on....and now I'm quilting my stack of quilt tops....fun, fun, fun! I started with a very simple charm quilt, figuring it would be a good way to do a block by block design. I thought about an all-over meander, but how boring is that! I actually ended up deciding to do a star meander at the top and bottom of the quilt...and putting an 8 point star in each of those little charm squares. Whoa! I had no idea how much work that would be...lots of starting and stopping...but I love the way it's looking. Pretty cool, huh??!!??


Once I get this quilt done...I get to move on to the next quilt! Could life be any better than this?? I think not!


As the sign in my living room says: Be Happy With What You Have....


and the other sign says: A Day Spent Quilting is a Good Day!


Until we chat again,

Aww, thanks Susan...the baby quilt is Kayleigh's (my granddaughter), she has already claimed it...LOL. I had a good time updating the blog, too, so many fun things to do. The purple charm quilt is one of the two quilts on my bed right now, I really love it too. Sometimes the simple quilts turn out the best, don't they..
