I am very close to the end of working nearly a month without a day off (from Thanksgiving Day to Christmas Day). The madness is calming down and I believe I am going to survive another crazy shipping season after all!
I have even been able to enjoy some peaceful sewing time!
The Temecula Quilt Company’s tiny tree is sewn. The quilting will wait…the piecing is what I needed for the time being. I think I will be decorating this little guy with buttons.
Since then, I have quilted inside the setting triangles.
I am now marking lines to quilt the sashing.
I do have template rulers, and a ruler foot for my domestic sewing machine, but I find it easier to mark my lines, and free motion stitch without the ruler. It is what I am used to…maybe someday this old dog will learn to use the rulers for how they were intended.
For the curious, I am using Wonderfil’s rayon thread for the decorative machine quilting.
