Back to the longarm
After a month of nursing my arm I've decided it's time to quilt again. I still have some issues with certain movements so I'm not ready to do ruler work yet. Fortunately Mom has a couple of quilt tops that need quilting. Marcy did one last week. This is the second. I know the purple and green are fabrics that I dyed and I think they might be from a whole palette of fabric that I gave her several years ago. Once it's quilted I'll show you the border fabric that I custom dyed for her after she made the blocks.
I think I'm going to quilt it with straight lines. That will look nice, it will be quick and it will be easy on the arm. If all goes to plan I'll have the finished quilt to show you next week.
I hope you have a fun and creative weekend.
I don't know how you hurt your arm, but I am struggling with an arm injury, too. Funny how the weirdest things hurt the worst, like brushing my teeth or opening a wine bottle...Moving the longarm is getting better, but still a problem with background fill for long periods of time. I hope you recover soon. This arm thing is a bummer!!

That border fabric you dyed is fabulous and is so perfect for that quilt. I am not a big green and purple person, but that quilt is so pretty!!!

Happy to hear your arm is getting better - it's been a slow process for sure. Now you just have to remember to be a good girl and take it easy and not set yourself back. Love the colours in this quilt and I think straight lines for the quilting will be perfect with the design.
