I decided I had better get to work on my UFO for this month so yesterday I laid it out on the floor so I could pin it and get it ready for quilting. I am quilting it on my 15-91 Singer sewing machine.
Warm & Natural is the batting and I used a neat pastel pink machine embroidery thread to quilt it. It is a 40 wt. 100% Trilobal Polyester by Coats & Clark. I have a bunch of beautiful colors that I bought when JoAnn’s had them on sale for 50% off.
Once I start free motion quilting I just like to keep going! I took this photo this morning early…..not very good lighting but you can see I finished quilting it and also trimmed it. I just have to put the binding on before the end of the month. I’ll link this post with Melissa’s Mid Month party of A Lovely Year of Finishes
A funny thing happened yesterday……Bob was outside and all of a sudden he yelled up to me….”Honey, call UPS, they goofed and left this BIG box here by accident!”
He is just too funny! You can see how much I have left of my last roll of Warm & Natural…..about enough for one more quilt or…..a hundred mug rugs….
I waited until it was on sale at JoAnn’s online for 50% off and then used their coupon for free shipping. I have heard people say that they have a hard time finding it in stock there but I always seem to get it right away. I ordered this last week. I think the only thing I have left to buy before “winter” is another bolt of muslin…..then let the snow fly and I’ll stay home quilting!
I was one of the lucky winners last month and received 2 charm packs from Stitches N’ Giggles. Thanks so much Melissa and Lori!
Lori also has a daily special……you should really check that out! Today she has a Giggles charm pack at 34% off, all of her prices are great!
