Today, with inspiration and motivation BACK in action, I was busy, busy, busy quilting Old Glory in-between loads of laundry. KNOWING I had LOTS of laundry, I set the alarm clock on my phone for every 45 minutes so that I wouldn't get "lost downstairs" all day. Worked like a charm, 'cept for the one time when I was SO tuned into my quilting that the alarm nearly gave me a heart attack and I made a little 'oops' in the quilting! I've lost track of how many loads I've done....maybe the 8th is in the washer??? (Yeah, it got a bit out of hand the past two weeks!)
I tried out a new pantograph on Old Glory: Pageboy. It's extremely repetitive, wouldn't you say? I'll have to think some more on how much I like it and what types of quilts to use it on. I LOVED the actual quilting of it; a nice-n-easy loopy pattern that went rather quickly.
I never showed a close up of the quilting on Star Harbor the other day. Pantograph: Climber. A very forgiving panto, and not so repetitive/linear looking.
So now, I am resting my back for a bit with a sit-down before needing to make dinner and start my evening goals of labels and binding in order to get these out to Karen, the Wisconsin QOV contact person. Bonnie is giving the impression that she is going to be on QuiltCam tonight, and I can't wait to have a sewing-buddy while I'm working away this evening.
Found this the other day: figured it would hit home with a few of us :)
