A Little More Quilting

I got a little more quilting done on my customer's Christmas quilt -- and then the tension screw fell out of my bobbin case, and I can't find it.  It's teeny tiny, and seems to have vanished.  Larry helped me look... brought in some of his magnets to aid in the search... but the elusive screw stayed hidden.  So quilting is over until I get a screw.  Hopefully, they'll have one in Fremont at Country Traditions quilt shop, where they sell HandiQuilters.  If so, I'll get it tomorrow.

More Quilting on Customer's Christmas Quilt

I opened the patio door in the walkout basement to get some wood for the wood-burning stove -- and there was a little opossum having a feast on the sunflower seed the birds had spilled from the bird feeder hanging from the deck above, one story up.

Next, I will quilt the red patches.

Quilting Carol's Christmas Quilt

I began quilting my customer's Christmas quilt last night.  I have a pretty good start on it now:

I like to first take a picture of the entire quilt before I load it on my frame.  Then I can look back at the picture, and tell just where I am on the quilt, as I'm quilting it.

Following the poinsettia, holly, and pine cone design of the fabric for the side and bottom borders.

Donna's X's and O's Quilt, Quilting Finished

Last night I finished quilting my customer's X's and O's quilt.  It measures 90" x 105".  The pantograph is 'Meandering Dove'.  I used white Superior #50 So Fine thread on top, and white Superior #60 Bottom Line thread in the bobbin.

Baskets of Lilies Quilt Top Together, Except Borders

The Baskets of Lilies quilt top is all together now, except for the borders.  Twenty more appliquéd flowers will extend into the borders.  I plan to put fabric yo-yos in the center of each appliquéd flower after quilting is complete.
