Yesterday I think I beat my record!
I had a friend come over and showed her how to long arm quilt, told her to get some yardage to just practice on before we started a baby quilt for her. So she practiced first.
then we loaded her baby quilt and I ended up quilting it for her- I forgot how nerves can get in the way and how I used to feel like that too....
we had a great time though! :-)
Last night I loaded quilt #3 on the frame, the blue strippy quilt.
So I think that's a new record, loading 3 quilts on the frame in a day!! well it's MY record anyways.
here's the quilt ready to go!
I'll work on it today.
also these came in the mail yesterday- about 4 months too late! (enough said)
I can't even remember how many I sent in, but I think it was more, but maybe it was only 6, I can't remember, anyways I wanted blue geese in a ring. some still had the paper attached on the back.
then I saw this? hard to see but one blue "goose" doesn't cover it all the way, so it has a hole! It happened to me on one of the geese I sent in, but I fixed it.
So I guess here I'll have to scrap this block! what a shame :-(
I already have a layout in mind, but have to play in EQ7 with it, how to just use 5 blocks.
I'm thinking of doing ON point setting, 2 x 2 and the 5th block goes in the middle. we'll see.
I'm sorry for sounding so negative about this swap, I'm just disappointed!
though I'm very happy with the 5 blocks that I'll use, they are GREAT!
