It's going to be a machine quilting weekend

I've had a number of quilts on my "waiting to be quilted" list for much too long.  This is the weekend that I start to make a dent in them.  I"m participating in a FMQ challenge.  14 consecutive days of FMQ.  That should really help to get those quilts under control.  Here's a couple of pictures of what I've done so far.    Quilts that I have sandwich and ready to go:  2 baby girl quilts (my HST project for cyber quilters) , Snowman Collector, True Lovers Knot and Tyler's Bargello.  Whoa, that's a lot of quilting.  My husband is going to a Sox game on Saturday so I get the house all to myself!!  We'll see how far I get.

If I get tired of FMQ I can always work on my Hands2Help quilt.  I have the first block done.  I'm trying to keep it random, we'll see how I do!!  One down, 24 to go!!

Don't forget to stop by Sarah's to see what everyone is Whooping about

  1. I love that you chose the Urban Chick block - this is going to look so terrific! Quilting finishes are my agenda for the weekend too - but that's on the domestic machine, so today I am giving it a clean-up, oil, and tension check so she is ready to purr tomorrow.

  3. Whoop Whoop! I love the feeling of finishing the quilting, but then there's the binding, my most unfavorite part :-( One of the necessary evils. Here's hoping you can get them all finished in one weekend!! Go, go, go!

  6. Your quilting is so fine and evenly spaced! Please don't forget to take rest-breaks or you'll be lying on your heating pad!
