A quilting weekend
I'm so glad to have the longarm back in action. After all the angst and multiple timings, I think I've determined that half of my problem was the thread! Whatever, I now can time my machine in my sleep. I got busy and quilted all weekend. It was so much fun to catch up on veterans quilts, like this one from Becky.
I don't remember who made this one but all of those starts are EPP pieced. It's my photography that makes it look wonky.
I also quilted 3 of my own veterans quilts and plan to get on with the binding today. I'd like to have them all done before our quilt club meeting tomorrow night so I can take then for show and tell.
I have one more veterans quilt of my own to quilt and then I have a big quilt that Mom made. Based on the status of this bin, I will also need to make some pet beds again soon.
That's pretty much the extent of my weekend. I did some crochet during the football games and am really close to finishing a baby blanket.

nice that you got the machine figured out - and could get some finishes!

So did you learn how to tune your machine by watching a YouTube?

Hooray for getting the longarm sorted out! The quilts are all lovely.

I think more often than not our machine issues end up being the thread. Glad you figured yours out anyway and now you're off to the races with quilting.

It is now full steam ahead since you got the longarm thread issue sorted out!
