New things today


This is the first time I have done a couple of things on a quilt. I sewed batting pieces together. The sewing machine sewed it smoothly and it quilted up very nicely. It was a Hobbs 80/20. I pieced this quilt last winter. It was made using up scraps of greens. My favorite colors!

I then tried using the channel lock on my longarm and I matchstick quilted parallel lines on it. It is all different widths, for a modern look. I like it so much that I am going to try it on another quilt.

I am playing with the layout on my “A Christmas Story” quilt. Of course I am two blocks short but I had some of the coordinating fabrics left and as you can see I am still playing around with arranging the blocks. I think this is close to the final layout. Maybe it will be done by Christmas!!

I entered this quilt into a show. I am waiting on pins and needles to hear if it made it…. notifications will be out by the end of the month. QuiltCon is the name of the show.  I joined the Modern Quilt guild online specifically to enter this quilt. I must say that it was so worth the annual fee. I love the online webinars and patterns. It is worth checking out!
