Last week my WW was all about the prepping of a T-shirt quilt for quilting. It took up the floor space where our 54″ ottoman sits. Yes, we basically have a bed for an ottoman. LOL.
Then it progressed to Gigi’s mid arm frame.
I’ve had to get inventive with the way I clamp and pin large items on my frame. It’s a hassle, but maybe some day, in the not to distant future, I can upgrade to a larger frame. But first, the quilting.
I had wanted to use my pantograph on this, but all the shifting would have gone terribly wrong trying to keep rows in line. But, why not just use a panto on a block? Hmm, I think I can make it work! So I taped printouts of the pantos to fit the size of the blocks and then tried to mark off my boundaries. There’s a bit of bobbling and wobbling, but overall, I think it’s worth the effort.
Is it perfect, no, but then neither is my FMQ! At least the panto gives me a semblance of a design. I still need to go back and fill in the edges on the middle block. I also need to resize the print out to fit smaller blocks better. It’s a work in progress!
