Quilting-Day 2

Welp will not finish today, forgot how much work to put together but it is FUN!!!

This will probably be a test quilt, will do another for the wedding gift, as I had to "free hand" the borders. Must have got ridden of my handy dandy quilt cutting board. The borders are not 100% and I am a perfectionist!!!

One border

One border with doggie help

Both borders

Will bind, add backing and quilt when return from my Colorado trip. Leave Tuesday and return on the 31st. Plus will need to do a new quilt for the wedding gift.

A quilting I am doing!!!

Got a new sewing machine about 3 years ago. Only opened it last August and just to mend Grandson's comforter. But I decided I was going to start sewing and quilting again so read the book on how to operate new machine(only a Kenmore). Would love a computerized Berina, maybe hubby will get me one for xmas if I keep sewing.

A co-worker is getting married soon, I am not going to wedding, going to Colorado to see the grandkids. Decided to make co-worker a quilt, as a heirloom. It is an easy one, basically just squares but it is called Portugal and since they are from Portugal, very fitting!!

Quilting Strips

Strips being put together

I will do the 2 borders, add the batting, back, bind and then machine quilt a pattern tomorrow.
