I’ve been away from the longarm for 5 and a half weeks and I’m ready to quilt some but I’m taking it easy and will work on small quilts for now. Yesterday, I pieced a couple battings from leftovers and a backing for the small flannel squares tops. The backing I chosen for the pink one was wide enough and didn’t need piecing.
Today after lunch by the lake with Keith, I loaded and quilted the pink one. Pantograph is Dear Heart. These little ones are so simple but I love that they use up the flannel scraps that have been accumulating around here and they make a nice warm hug for a child in need.
I have a goal of quilting 2 small ones per week in October but I won’t push and if it gets to be too much I’ll back off. I also need to get the Split 9 Patch assembled, make my family exchange gift, and our precut for this month is Charm Squares and I want to get a top pieced to meet that challenge. There will be some binding and knitting too … It looks like a lot but I like staying busy and I’ll take lots of breaks!
