All I Can Do Is Laugh!!

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….

  1. I have heard that a cat is almost a requirement …the put just the right amount of tension of the quilt so it becomes just loose enough for hand quilting. I have A dog so this if frowned upon
