Laying out quilt

The deck is one place large enough to spread out the quilt. It also works to pin it here because the space between the boards is a good place to safety pin though the fabric. Knee pad from the garden and ipod with Science Talk podcast makes job easier.
Mini the mut already approves, in fact does not want to give it up. Nice thing about a 6 lb dog is that I can win.

Top done

The top is sewed and ironed. The backing is ironed and binding sewn. Now must find a surface large enough to lay it out and pin.

New Project

It is always fun to start a new project. Lots of potential and planning. It is from a book called fresh quilting. I always have to do things different from the pattern so I hope it turns out. It will be bright!

Many hexagons later. I am about half way done with these. Instead of hexagons in the center of the flowers, I plan to add triangles. That way no more y seams.

Work in Progress, 2nd Patchy Heart


On the second Heart quilt I am using white tread to quilt it. I could not see where I had stitched on the white fabric so I have flipped the quilt over and will stitch on the back. It is a lot easier to see where to sew.

Back to sewing


I have finished quilting the first of two heart quilts. The sewing machine had a cleaning and repair of the tension which has helped with the problems I was having. It is so much nicer when everything works.
