A Quilty Weekend
Hi friends! I hope you had a great weekend! It’s been rainy here; a perfect excuse to stay inside and quilt – which is exactly what I did.
I started the weekend by focusing on my hexagon quilt. I added swirls to the white hexagons, and really enjoyed the process. Once I got warmed up, I just kept going onto the background.
MUCH later in the evening I finished quilting down the background with the same swirl.
Hopefully it dries up a bit today, and I can get outside to take a few pictures to share – I love the way the color pops off the quilt!
Saturday I spent a bit of time preparing to host Thanksgiving, and later in the evening, made a quilt back and basted my Maasai Mara quilt.
I’m adding more lines of quilting here and there in a few different colors. I’m hoping to get the bindings on both of these today or tomorrow, so I have some handwork while the kids are out of school, and the house is full.
I love quilting my own quilt tops, but do feel it is slow going on my domestic machine. I think I’m ready to seriously consider a long arm machine – any advice you would care to share? Brand, throat space, etc…I’d love to hear it all!
Hope you are having a great Monday ~ Amy
