I spent some time today with Millie, my quilting machine. We’re getting along better, though she has a little squeak to her when she sews. Not sure what’s up with that, other than attitude. Anyway, I put my Blue Lily quilt on the frame, and within two hours had it finished. Now to put the binding on, add a hanging sleeve and it will be finished! I don’t know why the color isn’t right in these pictures… the green is more of a lime green, and the light areas a batik in a light pale greenish-blue. So I guess you’ll have to just pretend! There isn’t an ounce of hand stitching in this quilt; the applique is done by machine, as is the piecing and quilting. Not my usual mode, I know. I’m trying something new!
I really enjoyed the quilting process; I used a meandering ivy pattern, and it was easy and smooth to sew. I like it when things work out that way, don’t you?
Happy Saturday – as long as I’m inside where it’s warm, not outside in the tons of snow we are being pounded with.
Back to work!
