Catching up on pleasure

See? a person should always save their thread! What a perfect match for my little QuiltForKids project.

My crooked neck, sore shoulder didn't get any worse after making and quilting and finishing the little QuiltForKids project so I dragged out this QOV, that has been lanquishing in a pile with other unquilted tops. What is there about threads sewn along a curved line that is so appealing? You see, I'm just starting - this particular pattern is one I do well, but gets lost on a busy top. In some areas it's almost invisible, and then it is ME who gets lost. Still, I feel so much happier now that I can sew again.

What color thread did you use on the red/white/blue? I did a bit of machine quilting this weekend, too. Got a wallhanging quilted.

So glad to hear you can quilt again! --Just don't over-do. Eh, you know I had to say that, 'cause well, that would be my proclivity. :P

So glad you are able to sew again, and if not all well, at least a little better. I was wondering how the long armers do their free motion without getting lost...hmmm...

The Thread was perfect...I found the addy and ordered a kit to do a Quilt for kids..should be fun. I would need many register lines to stay in focus doing a quilting pattern....almost need a GPS to free motion quilt. Sew Peacefully
