I was working last night when my machine encoder line snapped on my quilting machine. No worries, I can run down to Walmart and replace it with 50# weight fishing line. This morning, I do just that, then realize that my encoder hex screw was stripped, too. Thank goodness this is an easy fix, too!
I really need to finish this quilt. So I quilt most of the day again. I get to the bottom border and think about what quilting design would give me a good bang for my buck?? I want to to do something different from all the other quilts I’ve quilted at this particular show.
I try to remember what quilt goes to which show so I can change the designs from quilt to quilt and not be too predictable. My feeling is that if all my quilts look alike (at the same show), then I become too static and the viewers get bored.
Aha! I remember Molly’s quilt and the border on it. This will be at a different show, so no one will know I’m using it for inspiration, right? :
Here is a picture of my current quilt I worked on today:
So, this is my progress today. Tomorrow, I finish the borders, do my SID and applique work and color it done! Woo-hoo!
