Do you reflect back on the past year?
Do you like to look forward to the new year with hopefulness?
I did not make as many quilts this year
I think my longarm quilting has improved greatly.
Still learning a few tricks of the trade but happy and pleased at where I am right now.
There was a lot of sickness and death in
my life this past year and hopefully everyone will
be better this coming year.
This will be my first project for the new year
This top is huge 85X103.
This was made by a friend of mine.
She needle turned the applique.
I think the pattern is Mexican Rose or Mexican Flower, something like that.
Does anyone know?
She does wonderful work and she ask me to quilt it for her.
I have made some drawings and marked a few spots and now I am waiting for backing.
She had backing, but I don't know if this has ever happened to you, she prewashes all of her fabric (not me) when she washed and dried her backing it shrunk 5 inches!!!
I've never seen that before. This was not big box store fabric,
this was name brand quilt shop fabric.
5 inches.....so it was too short for the quilt.
Had to order more, waiting for the UPS man.
Can hardly wait to get started.
