I've been thinking random thoughts as I've been quilting the fourth grade quilts.
Best thing about my sewing machine extension table? All the clutter I can hide under it.
(It's true. I like Coates and Clark.)
I like quilting leaf shapes.
I also like quilting swirl shapes. They are perfect for jungle vines, ponds, clouds and even windy sky backgrounds. Oh, and butterfly antennae, of course.
I really must do a sample collection of various batts combined with various fusible webs. The quilts are puckery and I'm not happy about it. So it goes.
I love Pandora radio. I usually love podcasts, but I can't listen to them while quilting because the machine is too loud. Music is better for general background interest.
Several of you asked about size. Most of the quilts are 20x30ish, I think. I haven't measured, but I will before I send them off. I'll post pictures of all five at once and include sizes. Soon, hopefully!
I am eager to finish the quilts and move on to working on the mushroom swap I signed up for.
