Quilting, Quilting, Quilting...
I machine quilted another quarter of Allietare yesterday - no photos though. One quarter left! Yay. Machine quilting is not my favorite, but it must be done to have a finished quilt! Since retiring, I've decided to quilt all my tops myself...unless it's something REALLY special. Like maybe a 'bee' related hexie quilt. Ha! I do all my quilting on my domestic machine - Bernina 750.
I'm planning to quilt En Provence 'quilt as you go' - using my quilting rulers. It will be fun to try a different method.
As you can see I did a bit of hand sewing last night. To Doc Martin. Sad that we are now watching the last season...
Today: dresdens! Gardenvale! And I may sneak in some machine quilting or some En Provence. We'll see.
Some of you may wonder if I spend all day long, every single day, sewing. NO! I do other things. Cook. Clean. Wash clothes. Swim. Hike. Run errands. I do try to devote 2 hours per weekday to machine sewing. That's just 10 hours per week! My hand sewing is relaxing time - watching TV with hubby.
I wish you a happy day!
