Today’s FOs are headed to Quilts For Kids as my contribution to H2H.
My sewing buddy gave me a bag of scraps that I knew would yield some easy quilts. I pulled out prints to group together and used my EQ8 program to help arrange them in a pleasing pattern. EQ8 has a row quilt layout that is perfect for designing these.
Tops and their purchased backs
I used a panto that came with my machine kit for the purple/green top and then this Rhapsody panto for the other. The purple/green quilting went flawlessly, in no time it was done and bound.
The blue top went well, until I ran out of thread. Argh! When I restarted I got off track on the placement, but didn’t notice it until I had finished the last pass along the edge. Double ARGH! I ripped a ton of stitches! When I finished it the placement was still off a little, but done is better than perfect.
I wish you could see the quilting better in this one. I love that panto!
Then I put another strip top together on Wednesday, so maybe it will get quilted this next week. This will be for an organization called Tummy Time that our guild also donates to locally.
OK, off to link up to TGIFF and the parties listed on the side bar. Happy Friday!
PS: Dr video last night was reassuring. He said that the SVT is a low risk at this point so I just need to continue with the baby aspirin and lose weight. WHY is it always LOSE WEIGHT! LOL. Which won’t be too much effort since I was already tracking calories and have returned to riding 3-4 miles on my stationary bike. And he advised to go ahead with a dental device for my negligible sleep apnea, .2 over the normal range. But if it helps the snoring, it’s a win-win! So now I have 1 less item to worry about, but we are still playing a waiting game on the big item, so appreciate all prayers you can send our way. Thank you from the bottom of my SVT heart!!!
