FMQ Quilting Finished!

No automatic alt text available.

I finished my whole cloth table runner. I've never quilted this many swirls! I had such a great time working on this piece. I'm actually thinking of making another! There are 2 more whole cloth projects in Longarm Quilting Workbook. These are fun and fast as well as great way to learn new motifs and patterns.

Here's a closeup. I wasn't sure how my quilting would look. Some of these patterns are new to me. I'm happy with the overall effect. Not perfect but good. Much better than I expected!

I've been diligently working on my neighbor's quilt. I'm sewing down the binding by hand. I'm so happy to say I'm on the very last side! Almost done! She'll have her quilt in plenty of time for Christmas.

  4. Beautiful Rosemary! I scrolled down through your blog and noticed an Avante quilting machine. Did you invest in a longarm? Thanks for stopping by my blog. I've had Photobuck probably closes to 10 years. I will have to remember to download photos privately on facebook. That is a great idea. Happy quilting! Nice to touch base with bloggers. I have been so out of the loop for about a year.

    1. So nice to hear from you, Joanie! Yes, I bought a new to me HandiQuilter Avante. Someone bought it and decided she didn't like it. I couldn't resist! Hope you're back to blogging. I've always enjoyed reading your posts!
