How I Spent Sunday...
I spent yesterday at the sewing machine quilting my Farmer's Wife quilt. I started at about 9 am and with a break for lunch at noon, a little bit of time on the baby quilt, and some time out for laundry, I finished the quilting by 4 pm. All in a day's work and many bobbins later it was done. I debated what to do with the quilting but decided to straight line quilt on the sashing and a quarter inch on either side of the seam lines on each block. Because the blocks are set on point, I was dealing with a lot of bulk when quilting because I was basically quilting on the diagonal the whole time. My wonderful Janome Horizon handled the bulk of the 90" by 90" quilt just fine. Last evening, I made and attached the binding so this evening, I will be hand finishing the binding. Yippee! I am almost there!!! I might even be able to get a picture in time for Fabric Tuesday at Quilt Story!!!! Who knows!!!!!????
