Hi all! Where have I been? Locked in my quilter cave, quilting some quilts on my long arm... I need to get a few more under my belt so I feel comfortable using it... So while I am on one side of my house, My Friend E, is here, playing in my other studio on the other side of the house, on my one of TWO new JUKI machines... Here is my new Home JUKI EXCEED F600 machine, that has all the "extra" stitches on that my other straight stitch machine does not have. I also have the updated version of my two machines that I LOVE and ADORE. the JUKI TL2010Q... LOVE MY JUKI machines!!!!
Here's E cranking out a quilt top! She has been at it for two days, and it's nearly done....
and I thought I was fast!
She's adding some flying geese now, around, and a few more blocks to make it longer... I think she will be done before I finish this post!
Monday to Tuesday, Michael and I got to sneak off for one night to celebrate our 14 year wedding anniversary. Even though our anniversary was the 24th, better late then never! Date night started with some ice cream... not a bad way to start a date. ;-) Then a walk on the beach on Shelter Island...a glorious night...
Here you can see what I've been up too... I've been playing like crazy on that long arm... I have a bunch of quilts I need done ASAP, so I need to get over my learning curve! Am I bit frustrated? Maybe little... that machine is great, it's just me and my patience... I don't have that muscle memory down yet or the confidence to just go to town free motion and get these done the way I want... But I do know... If I don't quilt these tops, I will never learn... so I will keep quilting on! one day I will be better! right?
Hope I see a bunch of you in Pittsburgh 8/23-24 or at
Mary's in Bedford, PA 8/25.
off to finish that quilt...
gotta get'r done.
