Wow! It's been so long since
I posted I had to sign in!
I almost didn't remember my password!
Yesterday and today I've been working on my
quilt show entry.
I guess I could have waited another week or so....
it's not due in til March 4th.
Yesterday I loaded the longarm with a very thick
polyester batting and floated my quilt top.
Then using a water soluable thread on top and regular
thread in the bobbin I quilted around the major
shapes that I wanted to TRAPUNTO.
After the quilting is done you have to cut away all of the
thick batting from the areas that you don't want to stand out.
Here is a picture of what the quilt top looked like
at 6pm tonight:
I've cut the major blank areas of the
the batting away from the quilt back.
I took several breaks during my cutting marathon and during
one break I bottled my latest batch of Limoncello which I
began on Dec. 29.
During the last couple of days I've finished this quilt for Becky:
And made this label:
I embroidered this shirt for Jenny:
Embroidered this label for the round robin quilt:
And now it is time to rest!
