This donation top is from Barbara Jean and I thought I would quilt it with the Halcyon pantograph while it’s on the machine but I changed my mind when I got it loaded, I was afraid the ric rac would get too messed up if I tried to quilt it from the back so instead I quilted flowers from the Pajama Quilter DVD. They have a kind of whimsy that suits the quilt I think.
I’m never that happy with my freehand quilting while I’m doing it but usually once I get the quilt off the machine I’m happier with it and by the time it’s bound and washed I’m usually very happy. This one’s going to be really cute when the binding is finished.
I’ve been wondering how much I’d be able to get done before heading out of town again next week and was thinking I might be able to get 6 – 10 tops quilted if I worked really hard.
This is #3 so 6 is definitely doable but I’m not so sure about 10 as I have some non quilting things to do including spending some time Monday with a couple new friends and getting outside a bit since we’re having such beautiful spring weather.
