I can’t tell you how much I love my APQS Millennium. While I was working on a quilt a couple days ago Hubby came upstairs to check on me. I was happily quilting away. I told him for the 100th time how much I love my machine. He said, “Ya, I know. You tell me all the time!!” Then he said, “I can tell, you don’t cry all the time when you are working on a quilt.” That is SO true. With my old machine, I was always upset. I used to have to talk myself into going upstairs to work on a quilt, now, it’s not that way at all! I gladly and happily work on quilts. NEVER before would I have ever volunteered to quilt other people’s quilt tops for any reason at all!
A couple weeks ago I told our daughter Kelli to start bringing some quilt tops home and that I would start quilting them for her. Here’s what I am working on now.
I hope we end up liking it. I put those huge free motion flowers in the setting triangles. The colored part just has a really small stipple. So far I like it but once it is off the quilting frame, I’ll know if I really like it. I using Maxi-Lock® Swirl – Variegated Thread 3,000 yds – #51 Orange Creamsicle thread and so far, so good.
The quilt is an older fabric line from Moda called Oz.
Stay tuned hopefully we’ll be able to show you a finished quilt soon.
