I am sharing the beginning of my quilting on A Tisket, A Tasket. I loaded it up this week and got all of the quilting going from top to bottom done. Next I'll reload it so the long sides will run parallel to the rails on the long arm. Then I will quilt two different borders. The feathers you can see below and a stitch in the ditch where the green fabric meets the darker pink. All that will be left is binding it. This time I will machine sew my binding on only one side so that I can hand sew it down to the back. When finished this quilt will be hung in the guest bedroom. (This photo should enlarge when clicked on.)
Faithful Circle Quilters' next quilt show is spring of 2018. I've done several quilts in the last year or so that I'm planning on hanging in the show. I'm happy to get this one done early. Reminder to self: put a hanging sleeve on the back.
Pat and I got to spend a little time with Kevin and Theo on Saturday morning. Theo was all smiles!
I surprised myself by achieving most of my goals this week.
