Between working, teaching quilting classes, and cheering at cross country meets, soccer games, and football games, I managed to get Emilie Elizabeth quilted. I love her! I marked the center section with a Frixion pen, connected the dots, then quilted a very tight stipple around the feathers.
A few stolen hours here and there and she's finally finished.....well almost.....don't forget the binding. Once the binding, hanging sleeve and label are sewn on, I'll take a picture of the whole quilt and nothing but the quilt.
Everything I quilt is free motion. The only computer connected to my Handi Quilter is my brain, and that's a few megabytes short of a floppy disk! I think of my long-arm as a riding lawn mower......I drive it manually to music the whole time I'm quilting.
Thank you Pati from Marcus Fabrics for sending me the fabric called Judie's Album Quilt to make this quilt. I would love to go to Houston and see it hanging in your booth. This year during Quilt Market, I will be hosting my quilting retreat at Snowflake Lodge. Maybe next year Houston will be on my calendar.
Before quilt market in Houston, Emilie Elizabeth will be on display at the In Between Stitches booth #732 at Pacific International Quilt Festival in Santa Clara, CA.
I also, I want to thank my sister Gail for helping me complete the quilt and making my deadline with time to spare. I still owe you the other half of a cookie!
