Machine Quilting finished

I finished machine quilting a quilt made by my friend Marg to gift to her loved one who is very sick. I quilted a large swirly design and it went quickly and smoothly. She had picked a beautiful high quality brown flannel backing, and it was such a pleasure to quilt. You can see the quilt top (made from brown batiks) on this post


Also, another friend recently helped me to solve the problem of my Indian Orange Peel quilt


We have installed a temporary seasonal "cover" for the Orange Peels!!

Isn't this a riot?!

  1. I am in the midst of cleaning up my sewing room and just unearthed my IOP. I like the idea of a seasonal cover for it! Where did you find that fabric????

  4. You did a beautiful job on the quilting for your friend's quilt.

    Where did you find that fabric?? - it is fun, fun, fun and will certainly distract you from your IOP!

  8. Love those big swirls! I always seem to run out of room with my small throated machine for big patterns. Funny coverup!
