At the beginning of the week a wonderful lady named Nancy, from my local Quilt Guild, gifted me with an original Handi-Quilter frame. Her only stipulation, to pass it on to someone who will utilize it if I should ever want to upgrade, or if I am simply not using it. It was the absolute best Christmas present anyone could have given me!
The quilt in front of the machine is my practice sandwich and I decided the dogs should have it, so on the binding goes.
The quilting is not nearly as pretty as I would like, it's uneven and choppy, but practice should help. I recently learned that speed is your friend on this frame, so I upped my speed after this and things are looking better.
After my practice sandwich was done I put a Christmas Log Cabin I had been wanting to finish on the frame.
Every available moment this week, I have spent quilting, and I love it!!!!
Unfortunately, because I have been so involved with my new toy, I have done very little on the Bonnie Hunter Grand Illusion Mystery Quilt, http://quiltville.blogspot.com/2014/12/grand-illusion-part-4.html, however; I did manage to finish 40 of the blocks for the week 3 clue.
I think, so far, this is my favorite clue. Today was the release day for clue number 4 though, so I have some serious catch up to do!
