Just as I was about to post this my husband stopped by the house and I was cleaning the living room and he asked me "what quilt are you basting?" because he knows that I usually only ever clean so that I can use the floor or space for quilting! We laughed a bunch about that just now. I figured you'd relate.
I free-motion quilted for the first time on the long arm and this is the result so far. I completely went into it without any attachment to the outcome and so far and I can't believe how nice it looks! Since its a bear's claw quilt, my husband suggested leaves and berries cause its what they eat. Really cool to learn to quilt on the long arm. I didn't finish which is a bummer to have to take it off the frame but I am going to do some walking foot quilting on the bear's claws themselves, then go back down and reload it upside own and go through the whole thing one more time to be done. How fun is quilting?!
Another little top I made with some scrap slabs that I made last week.
And last but not least... I am having a Jackie Gering week! I took her hexie class a few weeks ago and this is the result of that class. A very cute hexie baby quilt with some Healther Ross prints which always melt me cause they're so cute.
