Well I had a great idea! I am ready to start hand-quilting Sue Garman’s “Bouquets For A New Day’. I have always quilted in a hoop, but I thought it might be time to graduate to a floor frame. I did a bit of research on floor frames and decided I wasn’t ready to jump in that deep. So I opted for an Omni-Grid floor frame. I thought it might give me a feel for quilting on a frame without a huge investment. I could not wait to get started!
So I marked my quilt under the watchful eye of Bruin.
I am doing cross-hatching in the background. The lines are 3/4″ apart. That is a lot of quilting!
I assembled the frame and put the quilt in it. I gathered all my stuff (scissor, needles, thread and thimble). I put on a pot of coffee. Life was so good!
I left the room just for a minute to pour myself a cup of cup of coffee….
…..and Bruin found a new cat bed!
I am making slow (but steady) progress on “Friends of Baltimore”.
Til next time….
