I have been hopping from project to project this summer. Here is what received the most attention this week:
I loaded a customer quilt on the longarm. I am using a pantograph. The quilt is Fire Island Hosta by Judy Niemeyer.
I showed the Swoon quilt in my last post about unfinished objects. I got the borders on it to bring it to the required size for a QOV.
Now I need to finish the back. This is the part I tend to overlook, which really slows down my progress. I have a stack of quilt tops ready to be finished, but if I don’t have a backing, then the longarm sits idle while I move on to the next piecing project. Talk about a Catch-22!! If I get the back ready with the top it will speed up the whole process. Easy enough in theory, let’s see if I can make it happen consistently.
I am using four leftover Swoon blocks for the back, and I have plenty of yardage in my stash to bring it to size.
I did get the two wall-hangings quilted and they are ready for binding.
I am sure I can find something on TV this afternoon for background noise while I sew! What are you working on today?
