I've had this QFAH quilt loaded on the longarm for a couple of weeks and finally finished quilting it this past weekend. It's not great, but I had fun doing different freehand things in the blocks. This was my first attempt at line dancing -- need to learn to be a bit more consistent in my curves there. Did some freehand spirals in the black blocks and some peacock feathers or teardrops, or whatever they are called in the white blocks. Today I put the label on and stitched the binding down. This one will be put away in the give away pile -- either a gift or a charity donation -- not sure yet.
This afternoon I loaded Carolina Crossroads and spent an hour getting everything set up and then spent a couple of pleasurable hours doing the Baptist Fans template. I only have about two more passes and it'll be finished -- tomorrow. I've already made the label and the binding, so hopefully, it will be finished by this weekend. Then I'll take a look at what is next on the list and see if I can get something else loaded on the machine. I'd like to get as many ufo's and flimsies finished this year as I can.
Things I love: 9. My Gammill longarm!
Steve seems to be over the "flu" or whatever he had at the end of last week and over the weekend. He said he's been feeling great the past two days.
Sunshine -- it shone for the first time in weeks today.
Getting caught up on a few household chores.
