It is snowy and cold here today! If you are experiencing snow where you are I hope that you are warm and safe :-)
I received a couple quilt tops from our local chapter of Victoria's Quilts to machine quilt. I like to give back so this was a pleasure for me. I loaded them together and machine quilted them using my Loricles grooved boards. It's like doing a panto-graph only much easier.
I used the Swirls board and a variegated YLI cotton thread called Egyptian Sands in 40wt. I love this thread! I have used almost an entire cone of this now since it seems to go across just about everything beautifully!
Here's a close-up of the design. This pattern seems to work with just about everything as an edge to edge design.
I always like doing charity work; but, I have to confess - I am SO happy that these two quilts are done and out of the closet!!! Now onto hand turning the binding on the quilt for my Mom and I get to load something for me onto the frame!! Yey! I was going to load a different quilt but - my thread hasn't come in the mail yet :'-( Oh well - there are more quilts in the closet and I wanted to piece the backings for the next two quilts to go on the frame anyways!
