Sue is getting her game on!

Today was a play day with my friend, Dee. custodia bici iphone 6 She has a Gammill long-arm quilting machine that she so graciously lets me use. I loaded up Sue (it’s a big one, measuring 88X100) and after an hour and a half of pinning, winding bobbins, securing batting and getting everything situated, I was ready to start quilting. Here it is with the top row of basting in place. I did an all over pantogram pattern, as I don’t feel too confident of my free motion skills at this time. I think I would have to practice a whole lot more–probably with a pencil and paper for quite a long time. After nearly five hours, I was down to the last row. custodia iphone x spek Color me HAPPY!!!
