Ah, the bliss of weekends! Yesterday was full of a little bit of this and a little bit of that, but today is wide open and full of quilting. I ran out this morning to take the girls to breakfast and the grocery store, but fired up the quilting machine as soon as we got back. I've had the HQ16 set up to a shorter length almost as long as I've had it, most of the quilts that I finish are twin sized anyway and it is hard to get around when the machine is fully extended. There are a couple of big quilts in the pipeline though and so I decided to stretch it out again. I'm still not sure where that extra section of rail extender disappeared to, but with a little help from Kurt and a trip to Home Depot we have everything working well again. I'm filling the middle of Roll Roll Cotton Boll with swirlies and the border with a smallish meander. This isn't the flattest quilt I've ever made and hopefully fairly dense quilting will hold it all together better. Between the strings and the excessive number of HST units, I'll have to give myself some credit for learning new skill rather than for perfect craftsmanship on this quilt. I love how it looks though and wish I could convince Anna to put it on her bed. Noanie bought her a very fancy bedding set though, so I'll have to find another home for this beautiful quilt.
