Last Monday I loaded my first quilt on the newly acquired long-arm, which took most of the morning. After lunch, I started quilting in a simple meander and in less than three hours I had the whole quilt done. Of course it is a small lap quilt, but I was amazed at how much fun it was to easily quilt.
Simple meandering shows up on the whiter tumblers, but on the black you can barely see the quilting.
I also chose a very busy backing that hides my imperfections and some of the tension problems that I have not fully solved.
My cousin was here visiting me this past week, so while we enjoyed chatting I worked on the binding. We also indulged in one of my favorite pastimes, putting a jigsaw puzzle together.
