Frame and loaded up a cheater panel and quilted that himself! So, this week I finally started quilting it for him. I did not use the Flynn Frame he bought, it intimidates me. I have been doing free motion on my home machine for many years. And it is always hard to learn something new. I usually do plain old stippling, drop the feed dogs and meander away. So, when I tried to follow the stencil that G bought, I could not follow those chalk lines to save my life! I kept going all over the place. Everything was all wobbly.
This one looks much better, I think.
As I write this, I am sitting in my hotel room in Houston. Tomorrow is Quilt Market. I have never been before (never qualified to get in before this year, you have to be a retailer or in the industry) and I'm a bit nervous about what to expect. But, my business partner Lisa is going with me and it always feels better to go with someone you know! Hopefully, we will find lots of great fabric for the shop and some great ideas for kits and projects as well. I'll take lots of pictures and post our progress.
