Finishing a quilt is always exciting! Last Thursday I finished the Kindergarten Quilt for Anne’s teacher. This week I am hoping to take it to school and get a photo of her class holding the quilt to frame for her teacher. That way she will always have the faces to go with the blocks. Anne loves the quilt.
You can read more about the inspiration for this quilt on this post. A lot of thought and effort went into making it, and many hours volunteering in Anne’s classroom. I know this will sound crazy, especially since I just bought a long arm, but I quilted this on my domestic machine. I wanted to quilt in the sashing and borders only. I wanted the blocks to be exactly as the children drew them and have no embellishment.
I did make a new purchase for my Long Arm. Vicki from Orchid Owl Quilts talked me into order Red Snappers, they are supposed to make loading and unloading quilts a breeze. I ordered them from the St. Sandy, Utah Innova Dealer. I can’t wait for them to arrive. I have a charity quilt that will be going on next for some practice and then I’m hoping to get Anne to finish her quilt on the long arm. She’s been begging for a chance to quilt on it again!
Have a happy Monday!
