Trying to get two big quilts ready for my guild's September show...
may have taken on a bit much
as I also have two smaller quilts and a table runner to quilt,
all of them to bind and make
hanging sleeves and labels!
The show is not for two months ....
that's enough time...
Things were going along smoothly
quilting up my 2015 BOM "Snapshots"
from the Fat Quarter shop...
Using utensils and a trusty blue wash out marker
worked on my boarder design using a walking foot.
Lots of stops and starts...
Lots of burying threads!!
But I'm happy with how it came out!
Machine quilting is always a challenge for me...
my Janome 6600 makes it a bit easier!!
Next challenge is what to do with those
uneven and offset sashing!!
toying with a simple vine and leaf design...
Love and empty spool!
Means I've been busy!
Even better when I have another one handy!!
Totally forgot about the photo transfer picture on the back of the quilt!
When the blue water soluble marker disappeared and the area dried...
this is what greeted me :(
The photo from the back (which I forgot to treat)
decided to bleed thru to the front!!
Will have to come up with a creative fix for this!!!
My second big quilt is an appliqué and sashiko quilt
from a Sylvia Pippen design
It has been basted (by a longer friend!)
with a double batt (wool on top of Request)
Now the challenge is to quilt out the design in my head!!
Cross your fingers!!
That's what under my needle for the next few weeks!
Till next time!
Have a great Quilty Day and enjoy the process!
