On the Auction Block

The machine embroidered quilt I showed a few weeks ago is finished. It's been titled Santa and Snowmen in the Pines.  Oops, I forgot to take a picture of the label.  Sigh. 

This was a great first project on the embroidery machine.  No thread changes, no stitch out issues that I couldn't handle.  Love the finished product. 

It will be auctioned next Saturday at our church near Richmond.  Anyone want to come to a catered dinner with wine and see what else is up for bids?  Send me an email and I'll get you in touch with the ticket sales committee.  

Other things I'm working on.... Scrap Squad #4 is a center of a top and I've figured out what I'm doing for the borders.  A charity quilt is about to go on Ruthie and hopefully I'll finish it today.  Scrap Squad #5 is floating around in my brain coming up with some ideas on how I want to proceed with it.  

Happy Quilting Everyone!

  6. I always loved doing redwork (or bluework) in quilts. However, I struggled with how to quilt it, especially if I am machine quilting. How did you do yours?
