Not a great deal to report from Sew'n Wild Oaks today, but I do have a few pictures of my sister's quilt to show you my machine quilting progress.
The pattern is going to be the same all the way down the length of the quilt. One thing that's particularly nice for me is that I can cross-hatch the borders while I'm working my way across and down the quilt. When I get to the end, I won't have to turn it and quilt the other borders. I'm not vertically challenged when it comes to cross-hatching. But I am vertically challenged when it comes to feathers.
This one is going to take me awhile since I'm pretty slow with the ruler work. I can't just skip my way across the quilt making feathers. This is much more precise.....and the circles.....let me tell you about the circles. I quilt all of my lines first, then I go back and make the circles. The straight lines help keep the hopping foot from hopping all over the place! I'm just free-motioning the circles and so far so good. I'm quilting 9 circles in each band.....except for one that has 10 circles. Gail will never notice :-)
