On Saturday she sat down to quilt it and decided not to--she says she loves the piecing, but not so much the quilting. She has pieced, appliqued and quilted several projects, but hesitated to do this one.
Here is a closeup of four of the blocks:
My order of Fil-Tec Glide and Affinity from Bobbin Central arrived a few days ago.
Magna-Glide bobbins. I am thrilled that they work so well even in my vintage machines. (They come with instructions to remove the check spring from the bobbin case, but please note those instructions are for long-arm machines. I just slip the Magna-Glide bobbin into my class 15 bobbin case and stitch away. They look like they would work just fine in a Class 66 bobbin case too, but the only class 66 machine I have left is my Singer 99 handcrank, and since I can't crank and quilt at the same time, I haven't tried them in that machine.)
I had planned to start on Lynn's Star next--then when this order arrived, I realized I'd forgotten to order another 5,000 yard spool of gold--which is what I need in order to quilt her quilt. I'm kind of hoping for an e-mail from bobbincenteral this week with some kind of special offer so I can choose some things to join the gold. I checked the prices of the thread my friend sent home with me and am so glad I usually use Glide. I'm eagerly awaiting the issue of their new Glide color card with all their new colors on it.
I'm linking to Judy's Design Wall Monday
and, since this new quilt is only about 48 X 56 inches, to Elizabeth's Little Quilt Monday.
