Quilting Day

Finally some time at the sewing machine.There is a lot of work to do and I need to get a move along with it.
After some reverse stitching on this project. I was able to re pin it and set to quilting it.
I was aiming for a full day quilting but as always other jobs meant I didn't get to start until 11.30.

The back view is easier to see the pattern.
I have linked this post up with the Free Motion Mavericks, pop over and check out what has been happening lately. It has been a while since I have had something to share here.

Now for the binding.

Until Next Time

2018- Finish Along Q3

It is time to set our project goals for the three quarter of the 2018 Finish Along. I have to say this may look familiar. The projects from last quarter are here topping the list.

Project #1 - I have my Hearts and Soul sampler quilt to complete. I want to say this is a sure bet as it has a deadline which is just before the end of the third quarter. It is ready for quilting. I have special plans for it using the Westalee Rulers.

Project #2 - Then we get to my Allietare quilt ready for pinning and quilting and the other left over from last quarter.

Project #3 - This table runner that has been missing for nearly 12 months. It is pinned ready for quilting. I may do this one first as I know what I am quilting on it already. I plan to use the Westalee honeycomb ruler on it.

Project #4 - This is where I may fall down a hole but the pile of quilting is growing. How I am not sure as I haven't ready had time to do much piecing but here is another one ready for quilting. This Water Garden Quilt needs quilting. Now I didn't pieced it my friend Shelly did and I said I would quilt, as she pieced it for me. So more Westalee ruler work planned for this one.

I have linked this post up with She Can Quilt link up post, so pop over and check out all the projects we are planning to work on.

A Project Missing in Action

This table runner project has been missing for nearly twelve months.

I know I had it at the Sewing Stitching and Handicraft show last year. It was pinned on the wall of my stand. I have the photos that prove it was there.
We got to November and I am wondering what happened to it. Oh well the Tanunda fair is just around the corner I will set up and find it in one of the craft fair boxes. Guess what I didn't find it.

Fast forward to the week before the same Show twelve months later, as I was preparing to classroom so some repairs could be done while I was out of the shop. I pulled a couple of quilts off a shelf in the classroom and what do I find. The missing table runner pinned ready for quilting. When did I do that! Why don't I remember doing it?  Oh well it is found.

Looking at it I remember the problem I had with it. One of my blocks is not set in it block like the other two. If it had been the middle block maybe I could of got away with it, but on the end it is bugging me. It is probably why it got put to one side.
So close but too noticable to leave as is. So my plan is unpicking the circle section out of the block and sewing it back correctly, without unpicking the borders. I don't know if I can do it but I will try it. The worse that could happen is I have to unpicking the borders. I will let you know how I go.
Until Next Time
