I am working on Quantum Leap. Nothing like a due date to get motivation to set in. It’s due to Jeanie on my birthday! YAY. I love that part. I’m celebrating this quilt as I go along and this will be a great way to celebrate my birthday.
To stitch out the 3.5 million pebbles I am using 2 different colors of Magnifico and may use a 3rd once I stitch it out on my practice piece – thanks Jeanie – to see how it looks. If it does what I think I’ll be madly in love with it. Oh heavens me I am madly in love with this quilt.
and this one
I do like to sip a little wine when I quilt. it’s relaxing and tasty. Don’t let the camera angle fool ya, it’s all good…the wine and the quilt are not really in close proximity to one another. Especially that red. 😉
Over the course of quilting each of these scissors end up on the floor, usually falling when I’m paying attention to the quilting and not what’s under the machine. The quilt sometimes snuggles under the tray shoving the scissors onto the floor fighting for more room and winning.
Those are just 3 of the many pair (including Paula Reids Batt Snips) that I have around…and yes dear quilters you do see my very favorite BERNINA seam ripper. I love my BERNINA seam ripper….it’s so fine and get’s into the tiny stitches when I need it. What isn’t pictured is the needle threader and needle to bury threads.
Oh and you can see the light that is in the bobbin area of the 780. Yep, that’s one feature I love!!!
