On My Sewing Table This Morning....



There she waits.... my Early Autumn quilt.... My sewing project for quite a while now.... Ready to be quilted....

I plan to begin free motion quilting this queen size quilt this weekend. Even if I only do a small section, I want to START!

I started out small, free motion machine quilting two baby quilts:

Sweet Savannah



Eliza Rose



I need even more surfaces around my sewing machine to do a large quilt. Here's how it looked when I was quilting Sweet Savannah last weekend:



I also plan to do lots of other things like housework, cooking, yard work....

Wish me luck!

Love the baby quilts. I have several old quilt tops that my husband's great grandmother made that need quilted but I have never quilted before. I did buy a quilting frame and hope to maybe quilt a couple of them (2 of them are twin size) this winter. Thanks for sharing and I hope you have a wonderful weekend.

Blessings,
Elizabeth

I just happened across your blog and have to say I love your quilts. I am just a beginner at quilting and have a quilt to quilt. Your picture of the ironing board made me realize I need more room if I'm going to machine quilt.

Debbie, I have a question. I've machine quilted baby quilts and they are not too bad because they are small. However, is there anyway to do this with larger quilts? Do I have to have a special machine? I find that I can do the edges but there is too much material to quilt (stitch in the ditch) in the middle.

She's Here! Victoria!

Its been an exciting week! Victoria arrived on Monday and I kept her brother for 3 days. Only bad thing is that today I am home from work ...
