So, in an effort to be truer to the process pledge I took some time back, I’m gonna bore you to tears with info about the quilt that refuses to be quilted. I blogged yesterday that I’d had serious thread breakage and batting issues after loading this baby onto my mom’s quilt frame. I swear, this’ll be ready by the time Captain Studly walks down the aisle. He’s only 13, surely there’s plenty of time!
Anyhoo, I managed to dodge a trip to a heretofore undisclosed destination…yes, I’m being evasive on purpose and was left to my own devices by Himself and the Co-Defendants. YAY, peace and quiet! I’ve never pinned a quilt on carpet, always on linoleum. My knees are thanking me and it wasn’t as difficult as I’d anticipated. Thank heavens for small favors, eh?
Now, it’s all pinned and ready for Lennie the Featherweight.
I checked out a blog post over at The Amateur Quilter about quilting a big-ass quilt (his words) on a home sewing machine. Considering the quilt he whipped out appears to dwarf mine, I’d say there’s hope for getting this puppy done.
Wish me luck!
