A Little Shopping A Little Work
Now that I am all excited about my longarm I am ready to get another quilt quilted. I have another graduation present to get finished. I thought I had some flannel that I wanted to use for the back. When I laid them together it did not look good at all. They definitely do not have to match but they cant look gross either. So I drove into Franklin today to look at some flannel. I found a perfect piece, a few other fabrics, and some matching thread. I came home, pieced the back and loaded it on the machine. I rarely start quilting after I load a quilt. I usually start the next day. Maybe because my machine bothered me? Who knows!
I am getting excited about Paducah next week. I like the show but I also like to get away. I get to hang out with a great friend who does not quilt at all. Alot of my friends that I grew up with are very surprised that I quilt. I was kinda wild and crazy so they seem to think I am still that way, and I am just in a different way! I get crazy behind my machine. I tried to drink beer and sew but that didn't work!!!!!
