TQP #3 is up on ITunes!
I cross the finish line!! My Ozark table topper is quilted and bound. I did some straight line quilting with my walking foot. I also tried a new technique, sewn binding. It's much faster than a sewn on binding. I think most of my quilts will be machine bound. I love the look of the buttonhole stitch. It gives it adds a little "tweak" of interest to the binding. Don't look too, too close.
I have two quilts on the horizon, Puppies & Pinwheels and Stretched Stars to GO. This my fabric choice for the "P&P" quilt. I am still on a limb as to what alternate color choice. Once I open up the, "Twice the Charm" charm pack. I'll have a better idea. I purchased the charm pack from MSQ's daily deal.
This is a pic of the "Stretched Stars to GO!" pattern by Accuquilt.
This is my fabric choice for the quilt. Although the bacground fabric reads "white", it has some faint salmonish dots in the background. The photo doesn't show the dots very well, if at all.
I practiced free motion quilting, sorta. Let's just say, it didn't go well at the end of the week. I did well earlier this week with the quilting, however, yesterday I broke three needles in less than 2.5 minutes. Maybe it was the thread. I was using the quilting thread used for the table topper. Earlier this week I was using a finer thread. I hope that was the case and not operator error. The earlier in the week practice.
I am prioritizing my WIPS. This is the next for completion. I figure if I complete two a month, I am golden.
My knitting projects and fiber enhancements.
This is what I am working on for my daughter. It's a nice "fru-fru" scarf. This is my first time using this type of fiber? I guess you call it fiber!
I also purchase a skein of the same stuff for me. Just so you know, it does have some purple tones in it. :-) I also purchased two skeins of Vail, made of baby alpaca and bamboo and a white textured yarn so that I can make "mini" snowmen. Here's a link if you want to make some for the holidays. I think they would be adorable as a garland.
Thanks go out to all of my commenters.
Until next time....................
