I finished the green owl quilt top last weekend and Tanya was kind enough to baste it for me. It is sitting in a pile, that is growing every day, of quilts that need to be quilted. Tanya pointed out to me this morning that she is out of pins and I must start quilting some of these. The current pile has in it the above Green Owl Quilt, it has the Brown Owl Quilt, A baby Pieces of hope quilt. Tanya has 2 other baby quilts one is one of the Jelly Roll quilts (the back to the second one we ordered did not match as well as we hoped and its now back in the needs back pile). She also has the baby quilt that was made from the left over pieces of Rebecca's Quilt half basted and waiting for pins!
Now personally I think we need to buy more pins and not rush me, but Tanya says I am slacking and need to get those quilts done.
Tanya has been playing with her most recent quilt. You can tell she has a style different from me, which is great as who wants to be like some one else. She made 9 of these butterfly's using her embroidery machine this is the first "Big" project using it so far. These 9 will be put as blocks in a quilt she is making. Last I saw there were 4 rows of this quilt sewn together, but I will not share it and wait for her to show it off when done.
It does amaze me how fast and neat that the machine cranked these out. And to think only 1 butterfly was damaged in the making of this quilt. You ask how can you hurt a butterfly? The thread got stuck on the bobbin and with the machine going full blast, before we could get to it and stop, a needle broke and the butterfly died. It was a sad loss it sat on my desk for a few days, before I had the heart to put it down.
