My quilt top is on the machine (HQ 16 by Handi Quilter) and I’m beginning the machine quilting. Having watched masters at the machine, I’ll be the first to admit that I’m a rank beginner…but, it is fun to think that I really can operate this awesome machine.
The quilt top is made up of a dozen blue batik prints that I cut with an Accu-cut template. It will finish at 60″ square…a nice size for a lap quilt.
I’ll be spending lunch hours working to complete the quilting as this quilt is my contribution to a silent auction that will be held THIS Saturday. No pressure here! Thank goodness for deadlines, without them I wouldn’t be nearly as productive.
I’ll keep you updated on my progress, and show you the quilt when it’s completed.
