Quick Update

Don't count me out yet! I am making a come back! I didn't get in any sewing time on Tuesday for the July Challenge, but I got in 4 yesterday in spite of having some intestinal discomfort and probably running a slight fever. I woke up yesterday feeling a little woozy and it stuck with me all day.

Last night, when I got home from work, I got to work on ironing and sorting some things out on my sewing table and then went to play with Lenny and Squiggy! They were both very happy! I loaded a Kids Komfort quilt and quilted meandering loops and was done within an hour and a half. Baby quilts are easy! Here are some pictures of the quilting. This was a quilt that I picked up at the last Guild meeting that someone else pieced. I just did the quiting.



It was also doggie tested.



I also used the Bottom Line thread that I got to test on Squiggy and it works great! I am going to need to pick up some more colors to match more backs that I have. I used a Star Brand brown variegated on the top and only had 3 thread breaks compared to the numerous ones that I had on the Square quilt, although this was also a considerably smaller quilt so it could be that the Star Brand thread just has some weak spots in the spool and that is where it breaks. I'm not sure.

Tonight, I have another Kids Komfort quilt to quilt and a different one to finish piecing the top. I need to practice the loops a little more to get the loops in a more uniform size. I think that I want to do the loops on Kristie's quilt that she sent me. I'll have to see.

Wonderful job on the quilt! Looks like you little doggie loves it too.

You did a great job on the quilt. I'm glad to see that your quilts get doggie-tested like mine do!

Your quilt looks great. I was working on a baby one last night too and I so wanted to do loops, but I was already meandering, so decided I probably shouldn't change it up in the middle.
