I am expecting my daughter Kelli to come home today….she is supposed to come to quilt this.
I was going to surprise her and have it all in the machine for her. I got up at 5am hurrying have it loaded in the machine and to get a few things done before she got here. I got it loaded. Then I thought I would surprise her by filling the bobbins too….then I thought, I’ll start quilting it for her….then I thought wouldn’t she be surprised if I quilted the whole thing? This was going great…I was getting out of my housework. I’d just have her help me with that being she would have a finished quilt. All was going great until I ran out of thread….UGH! I’m only about 1/4 of the way finished.
Kelli is making this quilt for a wedding present. It’s a disappearing nine patch design using Sandy Gervais fabric lines, Candy Kisses mixed with Flutter. I am just free motion quilting hearts and loops….it’s one of the quickest, easiest designs and perfect for a wedding present.
Now I have to call Kelli and tell her to purchase thread before she comes home….so much for my big surprise….little surprises are nice though…and now I am back to housework…UGH! It was fun while it lasted….
