quilting machine...

In case you wondered where I am, I can be found right here...still working on getting "the monster" quilted...as it's now named. Boy is this ever a big heavy quilt. It's all those layers I think. I really need to do some piecing, but that involves switching machines and I'd just as soon finish before doing that, so I'm giving it one more full day of quilting to get it done.

To the right is my faithful companion, who stays right there all day with me to keep me company. Okay let's all cross our fingers and wish for me to finish today!

I'm quilting a quilt too and hope to get it done today. Sometimes it can be so exhausting wrestling that thing around under the needle! LOL

Karen said...

What color thread are you using and what kind of quilting design? I am thinking way ahead to when I get mine made.

Lorraine said...

Good luck and I hope you get it done - it is a fantastic quilt! Then there is only the binding and you have a finish!!

You go, girl!!! I'm guessing that the JUKI is really working for ya. BTW, I won another Cheri pattern on EBAY! This time it was Posie Patch. And both from the same seller.

I was checking back in to see how you are coming along....I'm guessing binding before next photo? Too funny...kitties are always right there! Wish I could have mine upstairs but don't...he is an outdoor cat that we "acquired" when neighbor moved and left him!

Hi Judy,

It looks great from here!!! I'm always impressed that you are able to quilt the ginormous quilts - you have a lot of patience! I got another package with a ton of fabric from HH today for the borders, I guess? Nice fabric choices though and labeled Month 14.

I like the way your Juki is set into the table. I want one of those :-)

Quilting is a big job, not something I enjoying doing....hence I have lots of tops waiting.
Your doing a great job, don't over do it. Cats are so dedicated, they keep you company.
