This is where the line for the longarm begins. Any quilt tops that are ready for quilting get hung here (an old piano panel with knobs that hangs on the wall behind the longarm...in plain sight, reminding me to get busy).
The star quilt on the left is another Charming Stars quilt that I whipped up, this time set 3x4. I had so much fun making mine that I wanted to make another to donate (I may even make one more)! The backing is also ready, so it's just waiting it's turn on the longarm.
The Irish Chain quilt on the right is a group project by the Quilt Ladies (a new ladies who lunch group that I have met since moving to IL). We each made a block or two, someone took it home and created the top and I volunteered to quilt and donate any quilts we produce hoping that it will keep us motivated!
For RSC 2015 and the Leader/Ender Challenge this year, I'll be working on 2 different spool quilts. One will be traditional spool blocks (unfinished at 4.5"). The second will be Jenny Doan's spool quilt (found in the Jan. 2015 ed. of M*QC Magazine) using strings to make the 9" blocks. I can't wait to get started on those...more future UFOs!
