I have been busy quilting DH's Vintage Tin quilt. On most of the embroidered panels I am quilting cross hatching. I mark the quit with my Clover hera marker. While I don't like marking quilts, it has to be done sometimes. Especially on straight lines. The hera marker puts a dent in the fabric without putting a colored mark on it. You can see the dent in the picture below.
This shows more of the cross hatch quilting already done on the second embroidered panel. Now, I'm working on the outer border of flying geese.
At one point where I had to stop for either putting in a new bobbin or some other reason, I couldn't find one of my quilting gloves. I was quilting along and noticed that the quilt seemed thicker in one spot and thought I better see what was going on. My glove got quilted onto the back of the quilt! That is one of the "joys" of quilting.
Now for important things! I'm having a GIVE-AWAY to celebrate my 700th post!!! I started blogging in 2008 and have had a lot of fun with it. I've learned so much from other bloggers, gotten encouragement, ideas and fun! Seeing what other quilters are doing is amazing. So, I want to have the give-away to express my appreciation to my readers. I remember the first comment I got and also how excited when I received a comment from outside our country! Quilters are the best!
The prize that someone will win is a 24" square of labels and 2 yards of fabric from my Etsy shop. You can go to my Etsy shop by clicking on it in my sidebar and see the fabrics that I have for sale there in the "fabrics" section. I don't have a huge selection, but maybe there is something that you can use.
