Since this quilt and quilting has happened at warp speed for me let's back up a bit to Friday... here was my set up for doing a big quilt on a regular sized sewing machine... my Fiona!
It took a while to get the outer border as I wanted it because I did diagonal lines in different directions to accent my piecing. I had to mark all those lines and ease in the measurements to make it work one border side at a time..
|Having cute tools for a silly job like de-threading a quilt makes it more fun for sure!|
Yep, if you don't follow me I made a little quilt with the "leftover" pieces and parts from making the big quilt! I will reveal both finishes and lots of full pics of the quilts on Friday when my LINKY PARTY starts!
What do you do to play?? Write a blog post of goals in your life of quilting or otherwise and track your progress... it is 1 post a month that can help motivate you to stay focused on the goals you have...
One of my goals was to read some in a book this month for learning... I did that and it was fun... without having the linky I probably would have missed out on what ended up being the outer border on Rebekah's Journey quilt!
So come on and link up... ALSO there will be a fun prize for a lucky linker! Last month it was a charm pack and some wonder clips. This month it is even more fun!
Follow me so you don't miss out on anything fun and quilty! And here is a Cheer for being back to slow stitching for a while! lol
Linking this happy post to Kathy's Slow Sunday Stitching here! Come check her linky party out .. lots of great hand stitching going on there for sure!
Have a blessed Sunday!
