long day

I’ll start out by telling a little about myself. I am a quilter. Did you guess that? I do machine quilting on an APQS Ultimate 1 machine. I’ve been machine quilting for 8+years and love doing it. I made my first quilt back in ’89. I hand quilted it and have been hooked on quilting ever since. My sister likes to tell the story of how I said “I WILL NEVER MAKE A QUILT” Well, I had to eat those words. But I was a teenager at the time I said that. I have changed a little since then. LOL! Anyway, if you read in my blog just about everything will pertain to quilting. During the school year I drive a school bus, (24 years) so sometimes you might hear about that or my brother and nephews stock car racing, but mostly I’ll write about quilting. Here goes…..

I’ve been quilting most of the day on a huge quilt. It’s for my LQS. It’s the next Patchwork Party quilt and I wanted to have it done today. I only have a little more to do and I’ll b e finished. Well, that’s what I thought anyway. I noticed that some of the stippling I did on it doesn’t look good. The tension decided to mess up, so now I’ll have to go back and take some of it out and redo it. Some places the tension is fine and then some places it looks like a railroad track on the back!! Oh well, that’s the way my luck goes.

Speaking of luck, I got to send in a quilt for the $100,000 quilt magazine. They ask that the top 5 (from the photos you send in) in each category be mailed in so that they can judge them and then choose the winner for each category from those. I sent mine in but haven’t heard anything yet. I haven’t told anybody that I sent it in. It would be such a thrill to win. I’m keeping my fingers crossed.

Well, I guess I better go get something fixed for dinner. I’m getting hungry. Then it will be back to the monster quilt on the machine!LOL! Have a great day!
