Back to work

How did it get to be Saturday? The last top quilted was Tuesday so I needed to get back to work since I only have until next Monday to finish the last 3 tops to meet my goal of 10 before leaving for my trip to Virginia, Maryland, and Pennsylvania. Top #8 is loaded and in progress.

I was very tempted to freehand quilt curls on this top of Mom's but since it's a gift she's giving to someone I decided I shouldn't practice on it. I wanted a windy, breezy look to the quilting so I pulled out the pantograph Windy Day by Lorien Quilting - I'm just following the general flow rather than trying to quilt right on the lines.

Where in PA are you going to be? I'm in South-Central - just above the Mason-Dixon Line.

Oh Mary - we are all so good and helpful for each other! I've been searching for a good free-form quilting idea for a Kaleidoscope that looks a lot like propellers (!) and this Windy Day is the PERFECT idea. What good timing! That's a BUNCH for the eye candy!

That is a nice one that I don't have. It looks just like a windy day.

Love the colors and quilting pattern on your mom's quilt. So warm and fall-ish! :-) Jennifer
