Quilts #10 and #11 quilted!!

Last night, I knew that I wanted to get something else quilted, but I wasn't sure that I wanted to spend a lot of time in the basement. I have some other things around the house that I need to get done, but I really didn't want to start on something else.

I ended up pressing and prepping Jen's table runner and then thinking about how I wanted to quilt it. There is a flange on both ends and that kept me from trying out a new panto. I ended up quilting it with big circles. I used the same soft white So Fine in the top and a light gray Bottom Line in the bobbin.

I am in a challenge group to finish UFOs and my name is almost at the top of the list so I had to throw one of my quilts in so that I can have a finish relatively soon. I quilted the 2010 SIS quilt. I changed out the top thread to a light tan So Fine and used the same light gray Bottom Line in the bobbin.

And I just did a simple stipple. I was going to quilt just until I ran out of bobbin thread, but I never ran out of bobbin thread and there were no thread breaks so I got the quilt finished!

I really like this backing fabric!

About the time that I finished the SIS quilt, Max visited to tell me that was enough quilting and it was time for bed.

Dang Girl! That new machine has been getting a workout! You are getting so many things quilted. Way to get that UFO busted. :)

Amy K said...

How are you getting these done so fast?!?!? How long does it take you to load a quilt? Are you floating the top?

thea said...

Wow! You are certainly pumping them out. I'm guessing the new machine is working well.
