Free-Motion Quilted Baby Quilt

I quilted this adorable baby quilt for a client today. The fabric is absolutely adorable. It's fabric I've never seen before and the client stated that she purchased it while she was up north on vacation. So I guess I won't be able to go looking for it around here.

Old-Fashioned Pieced Basket Quilt

Someone from my church gave our quilt group a quilt top they had purchased at a rummage sale. So our quilt group leader, Judy bought some matching fabric for the backing and she also picked up some batting. I took the quilt to the senior center where they have two longarm quilting machines that are available for use at no charge. I loaded the quilt on one of the longarms and quilted it. This quilt is king size so it took me quite a while to complete the quilting. Judy will get some fabric for the binding and finish up the quilt so we can use it at the church's craft fair that is coming up in March. Hopefully we can raffle it off and make a nice amount of money for the church in the process. I never quilted anything this large, it was quite a challenge for me. So glad to have it done with plenty of time to spare.

What's on the design board?

I've been working on my Easy Addition quilt and I've completed about half of the blocks needed. It sure is fun making these blocks. I love putting the colors together to make each block.

I'm using my new 6600 to do all my piecing. I set up my Elna for free motion quilting and it's been nice not having to switch the feet back and forth. I just leave the quarter-inch foot on the Memory Craft all the time. It so convenient. I feel so lucky to have more than one machine ready to sew on.

I don't think I will get much more sewing done this month. We are taking the family to Disney World in a few weeks and I'm certain prepping for the trip will leave me with little time to do anything else.
