Quilting, Quilting, and More Quilting


That's all I've been doing today. Oh, yeah--I stopped and made some baked potato soup. Then I quilted some more. Sadly I have nothing interesting to write about tonight. About the only thing on my mind right now is the pain in my shoulders and neck from all that quilting and the idea that maybe I should take some Tylenol PM and go to bed! LOL!


I've added some photos of the quilt I've been working on today. I just need to quilt the border tomorrow, and the quilting will be done--yippeee!

Fantastic feathers! I love this pattern... Are you sure you don't want to come to South Dakota to teach this class? C'mon... the wind chill's only -10 degrees F!

Love the quilted feathers, Kim! Did you free-hand them? I hear you about the neck and shoulder pain - they always tell us to relax when we do it, but I have no idea how! I was doing the same thing yesterday and the old body is screaming today!
Cheers!

Wow such a fantastic job on the feathers! I have to ask your technique...do you go up the spine first and then feather down one side and up the other? I try to do spine first..down the side, then stop and start again at the top on the other side and go down! Wonderful job again...seriously! You should be hurting, it's a lot of work, but just beautiful!

This quilt is gorgeous! The quilting is fantastic! I love the feathers.

My McTavishing book came in last week. I've been doodling on paper, but I haven't had a chance to watch the DVD. Maybe when I grow up one day I can quilt like you!

By the way, do you sit your Juki on a table or do you have it set up like what a long arm quilter would do? I've seen those for the Juki's, but I can't remember if you have one or not. Do you have the stitch regulator thingy, too?

It's beautiful. :)
