Holding Pattern

I swore I was going to make a video this week, but as it hasn’t happened yet, and I have absolutely nothing crafty to show, I am going to wait and try to record on Monday so I can get my butt organized to post on Tuesday.

Things that have happened since last week: My new Juki 2000qi machine arrived, yay! Unfortunately I was missing a couple of key components to hooking it up on the Qzone Hoop quilting frame, but those parts should arrive Saturday. So I am gearing up to (FINALLY) start quilting again. My plan is to master this set up so that I can quilt ALL THE THINGS.

I sold my Arrow Gidget I table today on Craig’s List for only a little less than I paid for it, which is awesome. Some of that that money is going into the crafty kitty to save for “other things”. Meanwhile I’ve moved the Pfaff back onto the desk I was using before I bought the gidget. Yes, I know I have only had the table since May, but I’ve never been happy with it. It was “kinda” ok for the Kenmore, but I sold both my Kenmores to help buy the Juki. Priorities! I do not need 5 sewing machines, I do NOT.  That being said, the desk isn’t great for sewing with the Pfaff either, but it will do until I find something I think will work better, or sell the Pfaff, whichever comes first (Pfaff is currently listed on Craig’s List, too). As always, my project room seems to be a never ending work in progress, but I decided as long as I have my Singer 301A as my travel and/or emergency back up machine, I didn’t need the two Kenmores, anymore. I had kept the big one more for sentimental reasons than anything else. It was my aunt’s. I learned to quilt on it. I pieced and quilted TWO PoDs on it. But it was big, and it was a pain to have to use cams to do the different stitches, and I only have so much room and it just wasn’t WORKING for me and what I do as well as it used to. And the little one was so darn cute! But I didn’t need it the way I needed to be able to quilt again.

Other changes are coming, too, but let’s leave it at that for now. I think that’s enough to be going on with for now, don’t you?

TTMT 1/22/20: No video

But I do have a couple of pics.  Finished the Sesame Street quilt top.  It is bigger than I had planned, but I just could not  stop making the blocks.  As you can see, my blocks were all different sizes (I’m sure it was my fault) but I added an extra sash or two in most of them to make them all the same.  But I love that the the block are a bit up and down and I love the ducks in the corners!!!  Now to find the backing fabric and get it quilted.  

So here is a picture of the quilt (the lighting in here is dark so I had to lighten it up quite a bit) and the little rock star who is going to receive it.
