Quilting, Quilting, Quilting ...

I am quilting.

My hubby picked a bright variegated thread for

I picked an easy to do edge to edge, free motion pattern that complimented the fabric. 

Late at night,  I picked a blue swirl 108" wide fabric for the backing and cut and loaded it ...

Oh, No! 

This is wrong.  it should be under the other bar in the back.

Rather than take out all those pins,

I took out the back bar, loosened the backing and set the bar back where it belonged 
on the top of the backing fabric.

That was and easy fix ... :-) 

In the morning I loaded the quilt top,
under Katniss's supervision. 

This large quilt stretches from side to side across the width of my 8 foot frame.

Quilts on my machine will not get bigger than this.

I am liking this motif and the quilting is going well.

I posted this on Facebook with the header,
"Quilting, Quilting, Quilting"
and got the laugh of the day with a comment from my friend
Colette @ What About Rheema?
that this made her think of the "Rawhide" theme song.
"Rolling, Rolling, Rolling"
and now every time I quilt I am going to hear this playing over and over in my head ...

"Rolling, Rolling, Rolling ... Rawhide!"

Lol!  :-) 

Have a happy Sunday!

I have my leaders attached to my bars with heavy duty velcro. When we had a fire approaching our house, I whipped the quilt I had on the frame right off (it was my daughter's wedding quilt) and took it to my truck. I love having different ways to fix the problems we have in life!! Looking great and I can't wait to see it finished!! said...

Love the bright quilt and your practice drawing piece. Great job solutioning. What is worse....I actually sat there and thought of words to the Quilting, Quilting, Quilting to the tune of Rawhide.

Hi Pat! I went in the same direction as Colette . . . quilting, quilting, quilting. And speaking of which, I need to get going on something myself. It looks like his quilt top will be all finished in no time and you'll be binding, binding, binding. ~smile~ Roseanne
