I cant believe it is already past the middle of October. I love fall so that's not a problem. On Monday i celebrated my 45th birthday. My Dad called and was teasing me about being over the hill. I told him i had bigger hills to climb.
Our round robin blocks were due out on Oct 15 and i finally got them sent out today. Not too bad for me. I had intended on sending it out yesterday, but i got to the Post office just a skosh too late. I tried to make it to the one in the next bigger town, but that wasn't a go either. After i got it all done and the picture put in the middle of it i had this idea? I have a wonderful picture of my grandparents when they were a young married couple that i should of put into it. I may try to print it out and when i get the rr block back, maybe i will try to see if it would go......If not there is always another design opportunity.
I got a midarm quilting machine a couple of months ago and I'm slowly trying to make progress with that. Its frustrating to me some, because i figured i would be better at it than i am. I guess maybe all of us think that way. I have my second quilt on the frame and its very definitely a learning experience. I am not happy with parts of it, but i guess its okay. I guess i was really surprised how much there is to learn about the art of machine/frame quilting.
I have a quilt to do for our guild raffle. We did a log cabin in a streak of lightning pattern. That one we had hand quilted. We had quite a few blocks left over so we made a smaller 60 x 60 lap quilt. That's the one i get to quilt. One of the first things i will do with this quilt is BASTE it. If you baste it it helps to keep its shape and prevents draw in that comes from machine quilting.
Wish me Luck, okay.
