Here is my latest quilt top. For this one I used all darker strings. I like this look better than the first one of these I made.
I have only been able to quilt in short stints, because of so much going on with DD#3's wedding coming up and such. I have several non-quilting projects I really need to start, so after I finish up one more top, it's onto other projects for a while. If I really feel the need to do something quilty, I could always work on quilting some of these tops on my frame. I've really been longing for the ability to have two machines always set up, one with a neutral cotton thread for piecing, and one with whatever thread I need for non quilt projects. That way, even if I was working on a garment with poly thread, I could still steal 15 minutes a day to do some quick piecing on the other machine loaded with cotton thread. I just think a set-up like that would be ideal! Of course, I already have a huge quilting frame in my living room, and a devoted room for sewing, so I am already blessed. I guess I just always want more. For years I sewed on the kitchen table, and what I have now is so much better than that! I should just be content, and most of the time, I am. At times like these when so many projects are in the works, I get a little crazy, and need my quilting fix.
