Feline Santa...ready to get a felt backing.
I started two new Bucilla Santa ornaments. Sixteen tiny dots appliqued in place.
I actually turned on my midarm...first time in eight months. Worked like a charm...except my hopping foot isn't centered...I've tried to fix this problem before and am trying again. I got a new set of templates and the 1/4" markings won't match up perfectly if the needle isn't centered in the hopping foot. I'm very good at muscling around the problem but it sure would be nice to not do that.
All of the sudden I am having a crush of quilt design ideas. I have actually bought some fabric for a fireworks-inspired quilt. I suppose I will just have to try and be ready with it for next July 4th...not going to make it this year!
And years ago I did a 12-day rafting trip on the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon...a quilt design idea popped into my head spontaneously two weeks ago that I feel captures my adventure. The name was very easy to come up with, "Into the Raging Water." It is going to be a sampler with blocks named after the major rapids and other sites along the route. I would like to just drop everything else and work on these two quilt ideas...but I still haven't finished quilts I designed seven years ago...like this one!!!
I wish I could buy more hours in a day.
