Been a While

It has been awhile.  JULY!!  wow, I didnt realize it had been that long.  I have been healing and quilting. Along with the healing, my heart is doing good.  But, I also have sleep apnea and have a cpap machine, PINK, no less, LOL.  Sleeping a little better now.

 I upgraded my longarm quilter to a computerized one, Statler.  Took me awhile to learn how to use it.  Now I am purring right along.  A friend emailed me because I havent been posting.  I really got lazy about it.  And I havent been taking pictures like I should.  I have got to get back to that.

 We moved the longarm upstairs to our son's room.  Took most of the furniture out and stacked in the spare room.  Well, he is back home for a short while, so he is living in the spare room, with his bed leaning against the wall.  He is looking for a place to live in the Columbia SC area, then all of his furniture goes with him.  And maybe our couch, probably.  This is a good thing.

Here is a picture for you.  This is the design wall,  my project from quilt retreat from Oct.  Now, I am trying to decide how to do the borders.  The pattern called for plain borders, but the teacher had added borders that carried the design into the border and came together.  Problem is, it is hard to get these to match up. So, when I get tired of fighting it, I will add the plain borders, I am sure.  I really like this quilt.

Happy quilting,

I'm glad you are getting back to quilting and blogging. I love the woven-like quilt blocks.

This quilt design rocks! What is the name of this pattern? I love it and like Vivian said above, why even add any borders? Jane
