Not in age. That's so far in my rear view window that I don't even remember it.
I made it to 40 with the number of verterans quilts that I quilted this year! After posting yesterday I started to wonder if I could get 2 more done before the meeting last night. I have backs and batting precut so it only took 10 minutes to load the quilt back.
Both of these quilts were assembled from blocks made by club members. Becky handed out kits of fabric and they all came together for these 2 quilts. Two other members volunteered to take them home to bind. We didn't keep count but I'm pretty sure we made over 60 quilts this year for the VA hospital. Terry and I quilt them and Terry's Mom distributes them when she volunteers at the hospital. I think we have a good process going on!
I picked these 2 quilts to quilt yesterday because I knew I'd do a fast stipple on them. Any time that I get a sampler style quilt I'm going to quilt it with an overall design. I also knew I'd use the same thread on both quilts. My time limitation meant stipple and I got both of them loaded and quilted in 2 hours!
I can always count on my Innova for perfect tension too! The top thread is variegated and a bit darker and it doesn't show through anywhere on the back.
Now I can quilt one of my quilts!
I'm Vicki Welsh and I've been making things as long as I can remember. I used to be a garment maker but transitioned to quilts about 20 years ago. Currently I'm into fabric dyeing, quilting, Zentangle, fabric postcards, fused glass and mosaic. I document my adventures here.
