Quilting Bee Part 1
Saturday night was supposed to be a family get together to help Daddio get his latest quilt project finished. The wind was fierce that morning and I went out to find my car in a sorry state thanks to a giant tree limb that took up residence in my front seat. Jeesh.
When I finally settled down and got to work, all those little pieces Daddio and I had been putting together turned into a nice little quilt top thanks to Little Sister's piecing expertise.
Daddio had enough confidence to put on the straight borders.
Here is Little Sister, who is fresh from hand surgery (notice the bandage on the right hand) smoothing down the top as we begin to struggle with figuring out a method of machine quilting this thing. Nothing was working. It was all bunching and puckering under the foot of my cheap little machine.
