Pre-Thanksgiving Week

This is what is on my kitchen table right now.

I’m sharing it just because I don’t have much else to share in this post.

This week I did piece more Chic Country petal units, but a picture would be similar to the ones posted the past few weeks. So I won’t bore you with that.

Also this week, I free motion quilted another little quilt a friend made for one of her grand children.

Cute bears outlined, meandering & loops, hearts in the border.

And a star in the star blocks.

I never got over the fear of spray basting the queen size quilt. So, today I took the quilt to a friend’s studio. She let me load it on her longarm where I basted it with large circles. It is added to my To-Be-Quilted List, hopefully I’ll be able to squeeze in time over the next two weeks to work on it. This is the largest quilt to date that I will attempt to quilt on my Baby Lock Tiara III. Wish me luck!  I’ll post photos as I progress with it, but believe me, the basting today is not photo worthy!

What is the largest quilt you have completed on your home machine?

How did I do on last week’s To-Do List?

  1. Chugging along on the Chic Country quilt top. ✔️ More petals completed.
  2. FMQ next quilt top my friend has asked me to quilt.  ✔️Finished. I have 2 more to do for her.
  3. Hopefully spray baste the quilt for my son and DIL later this week when weather clears up.  ✔️ NOT spray basted, but I took it to a friend’s house and loaded it on her longarm. I basted large circles. Now to FMQ on my sit-down Tiara III.

To-Do Tuesday List for this week:

  1. Continue with stitching petal units for the Chic Country quilt top.
  2. New commission – 5 polo shirts to be made into pillows.
  3. Squeeze in some quilting on the queen size quilt.

Linking to To-Do Tuesday and Linky Tuesday.

    I struggle on my Bernina, as I seem to wrestle it through the throat, turn it around to do another quarter, and maybe the largest I have quilted, actually quilted, is about 40 inches square. Basting on a long arm would make it so much easier.

    Interesting quilting on that table runner. The colors are pretty, too.

    I absolutely love your free motion quilting, Sharon! It looks like you did it with machine software! I can’t wait to see your progress with the big quilt. I know it will be amazing, as your FMQ skills have really grown by leaps and bounds!

    I love your free motion quilting too. The big quilt will be a challenge but bet you can do it. I just have a Bernina home machine. The biggest quilt that I have quilted on it is about 82 inches square. I pinned it rather than spray basted though. I don’t think I’d do any bigger than that!

    Beautiful Sharon! Sounds like you are busy as ever!
