Scrappy Log Cabin #2
WOW, Six Months have past since I last posted. I am furiously trying to finish handquilting Mike's retirement quilt. His function at work is on July 14! I cant believe that I started this quilt 7 years ago! It started out as a walhanging and just kept growing. I thought I had lots of time to get it quilted so needless to say I have made lots of tops and quilted a quite a few quilts in that time. But the time is upon me now. I am out to the borders and the quilting is going well. My fingers are sore as heck but that comes with it. I was almost finished handquilting my brother-in-law Chris' quilt but had to stop to work on Mike's. I also made a scrappy log cabin quilt top and that will be the next one in line for handquilting. I will put a pic up as soon as I finish Mike's quilt.
I have also made a major sewing machine purchase. I saved and saved and finally bought a beautiful Pfaff. It is a Quilt Expressions 4.0 I love it. I am now practicing machine quilting. I love my handquilting but there comes a time that some projects just need to be machinequilted or they will never be finished. The first piecing I did on my new machine was the scrappy log cabin. I will post a pic of this one though it is not quilted as yet.
