Today I talked about my Quilting Addiction and did a trunk show at the Trent Valley Quilters' Guild in Trenton, Ontario. Unfortunately I forgot my camera, and have no photos of that to show either! One of the guild visitors was from Ireland and I was so excited to think she had come all that way to hear me speak (and also to visit her sister)!!! I had a fantastic time there, met lots of interesting women and heard a few stories of quilting addicts who do even stranger things than I do! What fun!!!
And I finally had time to do some machine quilting this week. I finished pin basting the Criss Cross quilt and started the 'Stitch in the Ditch' quilting with my walking foot to stablilize the whole thing. I quilted the vertical and horizontal seams and then both sides of the green strips. It went very well, with only a few lumps and bumps, and very little tugging and stretching! Perhaps that means I am getting better at the basting?
