November Daddio Update

Daddio's quilting was put on hiatus for a while due to Sandy. He was safely inland with a friend while I was off whimpering in a corner. As you can see, this past week, things have gotten pretty much back to normal at Chez Daddio.

We finished up his Disappearing Nine Patch in the Smooth Sailing collection by Connecting Threads. We have learned to use the walking foot to make wavy lines, a trick I learned from Cabbage Quilts.  The difference is that she uses the darning foot to make the lines in a free motion style but since I am so terrible at it, we just use the walking foot and wiggle it a little as we go.

We did the same thing on these little table runners. This simple technique is just Daddio's speed and he really enjoys helping me pull the fabric through the machine.

Last but not least, he has been a busy little elf making hexies to stick onto a wreath. This Christmas, everyone will know a quilter lives at his house!
