Oh my..typing that title on the blog post did my heart good. Did you read it? It said, “On the frame”!! I’ve been off and away from the quilting machine for SO LONG. I am guessing the last quilt I did was mid July. Early August I had foot surgery and finally I am able to stand at the quilt machine long enough to do a quilt.
Well maybe I’m a little premature. I loaded the (small) quilt top one night. I filled bobbin and tacked the quilt down. I quilted it the next night. For now, that’s about the best my foot can do but hey, that’s progress right?? Thankfully I have two blog readers that have sent lots and lots of small quilt tops from baby sized to lap quilts. I’ll be working on them for awhile easing myself into a longer stint at the machine.
This one was sent by Michele in Bethesda.
The colors are awesome on this one. The pattern would be a great quick way to use up scraps.
The white in between the blocks makes it look so crisp, don’t you think?
Here’s a closer up of the quilting….Nothing fancy.
I can’t tell you how happy I am to be back at the machine even if it’s only for limited time. Hopefully as the days go by the swelling in my foot won’t be such an issue and I’ll be back at the machine at my old pace.
Watch out volunteer binders…I’m hoping to have quilts for you soon…that is after the “H” quilt gets quilted.
