Tomorrow I quilt.

It’s been quite some time since I have actually quilted.  And I have been nervous about it since all the back therapy starting last August.

But tomorrow I plan to sit behind George (APQS Machine) and as they say get back in the saddle.

I will spend a good hour just warming up and then I will begin quilting “Magic Carpet Ride”.


This quilt features four Pieced Hexies Bonnie Stars…the star patterns appear in Pieced Hexies Deux. 

The quilt will hang in the Paper Pieces Booth in Paducah.  Either in their convention booth or satelite booth at their soon to be permanent home location in Paducah.

Yes that’s right Paper Pieces is moving to Paducah. I will post a blog next week with all the details. 

For now I am just pulling threads and taking deep breaths.

The quilt pattern will be an all over “Spikey Swirl”, if you have ever taken my machine quilting class you know what that is.  It’s a favorite of mine and my thought is to ease in with something second nature and well worn…like a favorite pair of jeans.

Deep breath.
I can do this.

……fingers crossed,

    You can definitely do it1 I, on the other hand…. Not a snowballs chance! I just got a Flynn frame today, so when the remodeling is done in a few weeks, I am going to give it a try, and see how well my Bernina (With a BSR) likes it.
