Wanna meet me? - UPDATE


I had some "fun" this morning; I even got all dressed up for y'all! ;0)
Summer definition of "dressed up" = out of jammies ;0)

There's a shout-out to Angela (soscrappy) and Carol (cornfield quilter). Of course, I'm saying hello to everyone who is always kind enough to visit and spend some time reading about my quilting, country, summer life :0)

**{{wave}}**

Okay...now off to finish this quilting from the video---I'm about half done and have been at it for a couple of hours.

2:30 update
I didn't keep excellent track of the quilting time, but it was around 5-6 hours...


one of the blocks...

the other block...

Oh, and we finally have BEAUTIFUL weather outside today! Sunny, but not hot; mid 70's the last time I checked. In fact, taking these outdoor pictures has me itching to do some mowing.



And a shot of the back.


Quilting time: ~ 5-6 hours
Pantograph name: 6" Feather Me by Meredith England. (look about halfway down the page, alphabetical).
Bobbins used: 12

So, yeah...I'm heading outside. I'll finish up the binding and labeling later this afternoon/evening.

This is so wonderful. It's lovely to see you 'in the flesh' as it were, and to hear your voice. And of course to see your quilting machine, and the space you have, and to see it in action. Now I'll be sure to be able to 'hear' your voice whenever I read your blog.

As always--beautiful quilt. If the retired person is an English teacher--she will love it! I have never seen a long arm in "action" before!

Nice to 'meet' you!!!! Love that quilt and your quilting is awesome!!!

I still use my stitch regulator. It may be 'cheating,' but I don't plan on doing too many decorative quilts. Mine set up is strictly for 'getting it done!' lol

Wow, it'll be a long time before I'm ready for a longarm quilter! You make it look so easy though! Nice job on the quilt! I didn't realize how much detail was on those pantographs.
Thanks for showing us! I've always wanted to see one in action.

I loved the video! Great job on it. It was fun to put your voice to the words... keep the videos coming!! The quilt looks awesome!

I'm still getting used to mine and I'm still using the stitch regulator. It will be a long time before I take that off...You know, kind of like training wheels! Have a great time at your party. I know she will love the quilt. Hugs, Linda
