Steven was in the studio fixing the toilet on Sunday.
"Honey, do you remember "Here we go Loop Dee Loo?" as I quilted a spiral, first one way and then the next.
And he sang :
"Here we go Loop Dee Li."
"Who did it?" I asked.
Of course You tube provides various versions.
And Odetta in a medley...Wait for it...
I quilted variations of spirals in the squares.
I cheated on the binding. I just folded the back over and made a hem instead of making a real binding. Even doing only that took me a couple of hours. I had to trim the batting and press each side. I chose to stitch each side as I finished the prep.
Next up is the baby quilt. I think that I will quilt it with flowers. I tired of spirals toward the end and tried my hand at flowers.
Most likely I will quilt larger flowers all across the next quilt. I will finish it more quickly that way.
Machine quilting on a frame involves a tremendous amount of preparation. Each time you roll the quilt you must fiddle with this and adjust that. I still believe that it is easier than pinning a quilt sandwich. I have done that and it is tedium DEFINED. Nor do I like hauling a huge quilt around underneath the needle. Practice helps. After all, how do you get to Carnegie Hall?
