My friend Christine was here yesterday trying out some new camera equipment while I was trying out my new long-arm. She wanted to get a picture of the fast movement of the needle with all the rest of the photo in focus. I think she did a pretty good job.
Today I worked on the Mabeth Oxenreider 2000 quilt, getting all the blocks sewn together and the first border added.
On a recent post of Bonnie Hunter’s (Quiltville) she talked about leaders and enders, and showed some cute little spool blocks using 1-1/2 inch strips. ( Here is a link.) It inspired me to prepare some fabric to do the same, and I got 12 blocks done today as leaders and enders.
Last photo on this post is a photo of a picture. It is a print of a painting done by my friend, Donn Warden. He gave me this print (and several others). Hobby Lobby was having a frame sale – 50% off. What a bargain! The frame was $20.00 which I got for $10.00, and they frame your print for you and put the wire hanger on the back for $1.00. A total of $11.00 for this delightful print all nicely framed.
