Sewing-and Quilting-Again

Yes, it has been a while since I posted something about sewing.

Way back in February, I put this quilt on the frame and I have just started quilting it. I am using a pantograph, something I have not tried yet. Instead of working from the front you are standing behind the machine and looking at a pattern instead of the quilt. The stitches are a little wobbly, but getting better.  It also takes a little longer because I have to roll the quilt after each pass.  The pattern is about 3 1/2” wide.DSC03144DSC03145

The picture on the bottom is of the back of the quilt.

The next two pictures are of a sampler I am doing with charm squares:


Yes, they are small-but really not that difficult.

I am working tomorrow but I hope to finish the quilting, Saturday.  More pictures then!

Hi Diane! I have been so absent in "blog land" it isn't funny, so I am catching up. I really like the bird print you used here of the chickadee. Do you happen to know whose fabric it is?
