This makes 6 UFOs quilted so far.
I have a great panto in the shape of elephants I have wanted to use for a long time. This quilt with elephants on it was the perfect thing.
Don't you just love these guys?
I do pantographs a bit differently. My frame lives in the dining room with limited space. I talked to several people at the Houston Quilt Show when I bought my Avante. The solution was a Quilt Cam. The screen sits on top of the handlebars and shows a projected picture of the panto on the shelf.
It works just fine! But if you have motion sickness, I would suggest trying it out before you buy one. It makes Frank sick to look at it.
When I was starting a new row, I sewed my machine to the quilt! It is difficult to free the foot from its predicament. I do this from time to time just for fun and entertainment.
I listened to two books in the last couple of days while working on my quilts. I had heard an interview with Richard Ford about his book Let Me Be Frank With You on NPR ab out a month ago. It sounded much better than it was. In fact, I kept thinking, is this the same book? The best part of this book was the photo on the front!
The Orphan Train was a lot better. It was one of those book I didn't want to end. There could be a sequel, I need to check. It sort of ended in the middle of her life so there could be.
Definitely a good quilting read!
