Altogether I removed her no less than four, or was it five freaking times from this most favoured spot of hers! She loved that I'd left the removable "free arm" part of my machine right there for her leaning pleasure. She loves to have one arm and shoulder leaning on something. I even moved her faux sheepskin pouffé (cushion) she loves, from the floor to the right of the sewing machine with new-to-us fabric under and beside. She, like me, has a thing, a very sensual thing, for new fabric. She wasn't having it.
|I wish I could add sound here, she was purring like a Mack truck, kneading the fold under her 3, yes 3, there's a back one in on the action, on top of the front two, paws!|
So here is where I'm at! Having so much fun with FMQ.
Angela Walters' dot to dot design in the yellow (without a ruler, not bad!), spirals and pebbles in the aqua, and Leah Day's Angles and Circles design in the squares. All free-motion quilted on my Bernina.
A peek at the back. In the top right you will see Leah's Pea Gravel Path design. It shows up much better on the back, so I only did the one. Most of these here are simply quilting around the designs in the fabric. Fun!
I've used more than 5 bobbins of thread so far, with the final border in progress now. The quilt is only about 49" square.
In other news...
The pattern said you might have to rip back the first glove a few rows, omit a couple in the hand section to have enough to complete the second glove...sigh. At this rate the winter will be over by the time they are sent!
