Country Charmer Machine Quilting

Hello Everyone,
 
Country Charmer is on the long-arm and I have three rows completed and ready to go to number four. 
 

I quilted one-inch piano keys on the outside border followed by feathers in the second border which should outline the quilt nicely.  You never know how it's going to look until you take it off the machine and you can see the whole shebang!  I knew I had to treat these borders individually so I could change to a different thread color. 

 

You are probably wondering where I've been the last few days.  Nothing interesting going on here.  I had to stop all quilting and work on accounting, pattern printing, and pattern stuffing.  So, in a way, I'm still working on quilting related tasks......I just don't have anything to show for it other than balanced books and boxes of stuffed patterns.

Today I'll start getting ready for Easter which includes housecleaning, shopping and cooking.  Our Easter Sunday is going to be Easter Saturday so we can all be together.  I hope the Easter Bunny delivers eggs on Saturday!!

Soon,
Lynn

  15. As usual, your quilt is beautiful and you do such a nice job on your long arm! I'm sewing the binding on my Christmas country charmer and will bring it to share with you next time I see you! So, do you long arm quilt for others? :-)
