Cuttin’ it close this time. Nearly missed having anything to report, but managed to squeeze something in at the last minute.
Here’s my June projects and my progress:
1) Addison’s Baby Quilt
Can I tell you how much I love this quilting design? It’s a pantograph called Feather Meander 1 by Jessica Shick, and I got it here: King’s Men Quilting Supply. I prefer doing free-motion quilting, but when I do need to use a pantograph, I’d rather they be fun and pretty like this one. It’s one of my very favorites. I thought it was great for this little girl baby quilt, and I’m real happy with the way it turned out. I used wool batting, and Auro-fil thread on this one. Both worked out really well . . . now to get the binding on!
2) Carter’s Snake Quilt
Next on the longarm, hoping to get it loaded on the frame today. I’m going to town to buy some rubber snakes later today. I’m going to put some pockets on the back of the quilt, and stuff critters into them for him to discover and play with. Think he’ll like that?
3) Connor’s Cowboy Quilt
No further progress, but hoping to make some soon. I need an idea for something adventurous to do to the back of his quilt, too. Still ruminating on that.
4) Bella’s Baby Quilt
I still know where it is! (And I’ve looked at it a couple times — is that progress?)
I can hardly believe we’re on the downhill side of June. I still have a lot to get done. Go see if everyone else is making any progress over at Bari’s.
