Next up on my machine quilting table is a lovely Buggy Barn pattern quilt by a friend, Virginia:

I love the whimsical feel of Buggy Barn patterns, so this will be a happy quilt to work on.
Next step is to pick the thread and also the quilting pattern. I promise to show you what I’m thinking, quilting design wise, but I first need to draw and email them to Virginia so she can have some input with her quilt. Keep watching! Hugs, Carla
