Christy has been loading and quilting for the last 2 nights while I add borders and piece backings. She’s taken the the HandiQuilter like a duck to water. She’s freehanding simple swirls and loops. May have to let her practice on freehand fans or stars and swirls.
She’s already told me the machine can go live with her if I get where I can no longer use it…yeah, right! I did stand there and quilt the first turn on the first one we loaded Wednesday night. I CAN do it, it is just hard on the hip. More pain pills please!
These are all donation quilts for Mission of Hope. Three quilted, trimmed and ready for binding…and she’s quilting on the 4th one this morning.
If we can keep this up, we should make a nice dent in all my donation tops…and think what this is going to do to my flagging stashbusting report!!!!
Christy brought 3 baby quilt tops to donate. Lots to get done. We’ll go till my batting runs out!
I’ve taken the next 4 work days off, so we should have lots of visiting, crafting, playing time. Wanda is coming over on Tuesday to play…gonna be a fun week!
