Quips from the Q

3 Aug

Well we had a pretty good weekend in the Q. Saturday I did a bit of quilting on my current project and then we went to the Harry Ransom Center in Austin to view an exhibition of the 1st World War. It was very interesting and they had lots of everyday items that the soldiers would carry.
So about my current quilting project. I have named it Foxy Frolics. It will ultimately be residing in my daughter’s guest bedroom and is designed to coordinate with the curtains I already made for the room. However, I also am planning to enter it in the 2015 QuiltCon show.

I am trying a new quilting technique on this one. Rockin’ G Quilts has a Nolting Fun Quilter, Nellie, that I love! Nellie is a hard worker and completely dependable. But straight line quilting, with a ruler, is a new challenge for me. It is no problem for Nellie, but there is a learning curve for me. 😁
However, I have passed the midpoint, so it should be easy going from now on!
I think I see a light at the end of the tunnel…hope it isn’t a train!
