We had a refreshing rain storm blow in this week, so our trek north was postponed until next week. I took advantage of the extra time to finish my doll quilt for Nicky.
Then I had some fun with some free motion machine quilting. I still do my quilting on my old Bernina 1090 without the luxury of stitch control. A fabulous quilting teacher at TOWQS named Carol set me free last year when it comes to free motion quilting. Nothing is marked...I just start drawing...true to the method Carol taught us.
It will be hard to part with this quilt!
Also managed to finish printing and packaging 25 copies of my pattern.
One is on its way to Ann Seely, whose quilt was my inspiration, and three are already off to customers. The rest will be available at TOWQS after I deliver them today. I had a wonderful response to the quilt with many requests for the pattern.
Wish me luck!
Speaking of patterns...I did a little piecing for a local designer and the quilt I helped her with made its debut at Quilt Market. I am hoping to share it with you soon.
