A few of you noticed and asked about the scrappy quilt blocks from this post. Can't get anything past you guys, can I?? LOL Well, I thought I'd give you just another peek...
Yesterday, I rented a quilting machine at a LQS and quilted it myself! It was sooo much fun! The machine they have in the shop is a HandiQuilter 18 Avante. I'm really impressed with this machine and table....it quilts beautifully and the table is very stable.
I just did freehand loops...I am comfortable with this design, but I need to start challenging myself and trying other things. :P I used a variegated thread, but it blended so well, you can hardly see it!
I'm sewing the binding on today, so maybe I'll have a picture of the finished quilt before too long! (no promises though...the Christmas Wish quilt is still waiting for the binding to be finished.)
