What Are You Working On Now?   General Discussion

Love it! I finished the last of my quilting for the year. Sitting outside Santa Fe waiting for my lunch.

I got Denise's quilt binding half done. Would have done more but I drove half way. We left at 6am.

Now I need to figure out a bit of decorating for the house. Both girls are coming up Christmas morning.

Yup sometimes you just don't have the right fabric in your stash and you just have to get the right thing. I start with stash and then fill in with new stuff.

I need to learn how to FMQ on my treadle. I think I could control the speed much better.

I use a flexible snow sled as my Supreme Slider.  It was big enough to cut into 3 different sizes so I can use almost any machine I have to FMQ (if I ever get good at it anyway) and quilt SITD or simple grids.

Actually what I NEED to do is just devote some serious time to getting FMQ down pat and using it weekly.

Patty helped me finish a tp and then we made another one. Quilted a couple of hers. It was a productive weekend. It is awesome to have Pita quilting. I start something and leave for work. When I get home it is like a little quilting elf has come in and worked on it.

I have done FMQ on my treadle....I don't have the right foot for it, so I go footless, which means I have to use something to keep from sewing me to the quilt - I have a set of OctiHoops that work for keeping out of the way. 

Did you ever see any of the youtube videos of FMQ work on treadle  that Tim Latimer did? If not, its a treat to watch him work. (I don't know what happened to him.. he was going gangbusters, but no one has heard from him in a couple of years)

ooh.. I love your Christmas Snowflake Stars! It's magical how you go from just a block and an idea to a full quilt so quickly.

top finished, now loading the LA and deciding how to quilt.  Probably just an edge to edge in white.  I'm not up to trying anything fancy.

The quilt is plenty fancy so I'm sure that your edge to edge will dress it up very nicely.
