Odds and ends in blue



How long does it take to machine quilt a quilt it took 4 months to piece? Alot longer than one week, that's for sure. (It will take at least 3 weeks. I haven't even finished the stitch in the ditch.) However, I did take a little respite for my big quilt today. I am doing a machine quilting demo at Sew Much More in Austin on Saturday, so I need a sample. So, I just got out some odds and ends in blue and made one. It was so much fun to whip up something quick after the time and intensity of this big ole dresdan plate. I'll post pictures of it quilted later. So if you are in Austin, Tx on Saturday, come by and see me at Sew Much More from 2pm-4pm. I'd luv to see ya.

Please forgive me but I actually find it comforting to know how long your big quilt will take... I have visions of you whipping your beautiful, intricate quilts up lick-ity split, while It seems to take me forever just to do something relatively basic. I feel I work as slow as a snail... sigh.

I like your improve piece here, too... Have lots of doing your demo! (My sister lives in Austin. Someday I hope to get around to visiting her, instead of her always visiting me. I hear Austin is beautiful and lots of fun!)

Victoria, I have visions of whipping things up lickety-split myself. Unfortunately, visions is the key word here. However if you have been quilting any length of time, you know it is about the process (cause God is in the details.)
Your sister lives in Austin? Girlfriend, you need to come for a visit! Austin is awesome! Friendly folks, good mexican food, and a friend that knows where the fabric can be found! Take care and happy quilting!
