Happy Friday the 13th!
It's a lucky day for me...17 years ago I was gifted with a baby boy, and although the Dr. tried to force him to enter the world before Friday the 13th, he would not co-operate! Guess he was waiting for his own special/lucky day to enter the world! To see his cuteness - click here.
I have been having some great quilty luck this week in machine quilting a donation quilt. You can see the quilt top on this blog post from last April, when I sewed the borders onto the donated blocks. I bought the backing on the sale rack at Keepsake Quilting while visiting New Hampshire last June. Yes... this quilt has been sitting and waiting patiently since then! And this week, is it's lucky week to be finished!
The thread I'm using on the top is Aurifil thread and Superior thread is in the bobbin, and it has been a great combination. I haven't had a single thread break or trouble with the tension, which has allowed me to relax and enjoy the machine quilting.
This is the quilt in my sewing machine. I don't know if you can see the quilting design here...it's not a great photo, since it was taken late at night (have I mentioned that sleep is highly overrated?!?).
I am just quilting three wavy, concentric lines in each block, and then horizontal/vertical wavy lines in the borders. Very fun!
Hope you have a lucky Friday the 13th today!
