Slow Going

I have been working on my Bobbins quilt for a while now.  I don’t know if it’s because it’s summer or the amount of actually sewing involved in this case.  I have been sewing squares onto two corners or a 3 1/2 inch square

 

 

 

At first I was going to mark each square with a line down the middle.     

But when I realized I would have to mark 576 squares I changed my mind pretty quickly.

So I used some masking tape to mark a line even with the needle of my machine and then sewed each square by starting at one point while making sure the point on the other side of the square stayed along the masking tape.

It certainly went much faster.

While I sewed I was able to look at my row by row quilt.

The rows were made by my good friends Louise Haddon, Dorothy Livernash, Nancy Thone and Carolyn Sanger.  I then but the rows together by adding the solid color, black shadows and backround.  I quilted the quilt after taking a class on Craftsy called Wild Quilting by Christina Cameli.   If you have never taken a class at Craftsy you don’t know what your missing.  I have taken several and I can tell you they are informational, inspirational and professionally done.  Hop over there and check them out.

 

I did enter a quilt in Quilt Expo which is held in Madison, Wisconsin on September 7-9, 2017.  If you have never been to that show try to get there.  It is an excellent show.  I should know by the end of the month if my quilt has been accepted.  Keep your fingers crossed for me.  I’ll let you know.

Happy Quilting everyone!
