I've been debating how I wanted to quilt the Pie in the Sky quilt, and I finally decided to use a particular stencil design in each block, so I spent part of my Saturday transferring the design onto some of the blocks--I think I probably stenciled the first 25 blocks or so. Before quilting, though, I thought I should give the old Juki a little clean. Well, a "little clean" led to unscrewing and removing the bottom of the machine--and BOY WAS IT NASTY IN THERE! I brushed out all the dust bunnies and wiped out the bottom tray, and although it's not all bright and shiny new by any means, I am confident that it's a much happier machine now. After putting the bottom back on, I wiped down the outside and gave it a little machine oil, and I do think it's working quite nicely!
After Ms. Juki got her little spa treatment, I started quilting the first few blocks while watching the Olympics. I plan to keep working on the quilting on Sunday, especially since it's Scrap Basket Sunday and this is my scrappy quilt project. What are you working on? If you have a scrappy project to share, please post a photo or two on your blog and link up below.
