My goal today was to get mom's Roll Roll Cotton Boll mystery quilt into the longarm and get started quilting on it. Below is the first picture with the quilt being loaded in the longarm. Once I got started quilting I didn't want to stop. Tonight was my quilting bee night and Debbie was hosting. I had to call and beg off since I didn't want to stop. Debbie totally understood that it is always best to keep working on this type of project if possible. Otherwise it will be sometimes weeks before I can get back to finish the project. Thanks Debbie for being understanding and I'll see everyone next time.
Oh yeah.........HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY BEE BUDDY SUSAN!! Hope you had a great birthday.
While I am quilting one of the secrets that I have learned is to turn off the overhead lights and use a side light to see where you have been. This is especially important when you are free hand quilting like I was on this quilt. I just love how it shows off the stitches as below.
I work in the ER 12 hours tomorrow so I have to get into bed early.....if possible.
