More practice!

Happy Sunday! I hope you are having a lovely day where ever you are!

We’ve had a rainy weekend so I got to do some quilting today! I successfully quilted a nice lap or couch size quilt top – 62″ x 80″!

Here was how it started…a very nice selection of fabrics!


I made this quilt top a month or so back and I guess with the quilt show and delivery of the Statler I never posted it here! I’m glad I at least posted it on my Facebook page!


I did my daily maintenance on the Gammill – oiling, dusting, bobbin winding, etc. Then I loaded the backing fabric and floated the batting and top. Here is the first row!


With the Statler magic and only two stops for refills in the bobbin, it is quilted!!!


I tried to photograph the back…white on white fabric with natural thread…a cloudy day…isn’t’ the best for a great photo, but I promise, there isn’t any puckers, pinches or skipped stitches! Yay!!DSC05760

All the trimming is done and it is ready for the binding! I am happy I am getting the measurements better so the quilting goes almost to the edge but leaves enough for the binding to be attached without cuting off the design.


I’ll get the binding made next and I might even get it sewn on today but most likely not until the morning!

This one will be for sale in my online shop, so watch for that posting! Subscribe to my blog and you won’t miss it or any other items I make in the future!

Thanks for stopping by!
