Today was a productive day in my workshop, which is actually the dining-room-slash-kitchen.
I quilted the Ugly Eye Spy quilt in less than one episode of Law and Order. Daniel V, the new sewing machine, is wonderful! I tried free motion quilting on the Alexander Henry Cars quilt and did a not-so-bad job. Today, I continued with free-motion and did a pretty good job! Far fewer tension problems on the back, wonderful looking loops, and I only quilted myself into a corner twice! Having the extension table makes a huge difference, even though I'm quilting on a table the size of a postage stamp. I definitely need to get some of those grippy quilter's gloves!
Additionally, I made made the backing for the French Braid quilt and also made a pieced backing for the Black Eyed Susans quilt. Those items are hanging up in the closet waiting to get basted and quilted-- just gotta buy some batting for both. I also cut the strips for the binding on the Go Navy! quilt.
