On the frame now is another quilt for Elizabeth House. I will be working on this as I have time, but the next couple of weeks is going to be very busy with other things.
I am using two layers of batting this time, as the roll I have is somewhat thin. Elizabeth House residents need warmth so double batting makes sense. I just made sure that the scrim side was on top of both layers.
It is making a lovely quilting pattern with soft edged flowers.
The pantograph is a pansy pattern with a few leaves, nice on the green and purple. But, I noticed around here that my bobbin tension is off, so I fixed that and will be taking part of this out where the tension really is bad. Luckily I have all month to get it done, going 1-2 passes here and there as I go stir crazy needing to put thread into fabric.
So, that is what I am up to on the frame. I want to let you all know that I will be taking a break from my normal blogging activities of doing linkups, responding to comments and commenting on other blogs for a couple of weeks. I have some medical tests to do, and then 50 hours of continuing education to complete, so I just need to spend some more time on the necessities for a bit. Don’t worry, you won’t miss me, as I have posts scheduled roughly every other day for the next three weeks, including the Scrap Dance Tango reveal on Friday, June 10 (7:30 am). You’ll see new quilt designs, quilting of Tango and Quickstep, a couple of new recipes along with a garden update and a patriotic tablescape. Please continue to leave comments, I promise I’ll read every one, even if I cannot respond right away.
When I resume at the end of the month, I’ll be sharing an exciting event of Christmas in July with some new ideas and several posts on the subject, along with being a stop on the Christmas In July Blog Hop by Confessions of a Fabric Addict. Plus I have another Moda Bake Shop design that will publish in August. So, stay tuned, and enjoy the upcoming posts!
