At Least I Have Lots of Binding

Earlier last week, I decided it was high time to get going on my "to be quilted" pile.  I had 7 tops and backings waiting to be made into quilts.   So Monday I quilted  BasiX quilt with some wonderful swirls.  Always a great go to quilting all over design ;)

And things were going swimmingly and the machine was already loaded with red thread, so I figured keep things rolling and on Tuesday I quilted my Snowball Quilt.  I did my all over echoed paisley design on this one, and there is a little video tutorial over here for it if you are interested. 

And then on Wednesday, I figured why not go for three in a row.  So I loaded this little "leftover" quilt (I promise to share more on the name when I post the quilt ;)  and changed the thread out to my favorite 402 Pearl and quilted some all over Loose Feathers that I learned from Rebecca's tutorial.  And I can't wait to share more on this one ;)

And then we hit the Holiday's and all quilting came to a screeching stop.   But 3 wasn't bad, and come Monday, I figured I should keep riding the quilting title wave and load another quilt.   So I loaded my recent finish that will be my newest pattern release  (hopefully pretty soon) and opted for some custom quilting.   But halfway through the first row, I decided I didn't like a part of the custom quilting so out came the seam ripper.   I should have known then that things were spiraling down.   A while later with quilting ripping done, I pushed forward with renewed determination.   I finished the first row and loved it!!!!    Roll the quilt and onto the second row, when Wham!!!  Super Loud Noise and crunch.   I still don't know exactly what happened, but somehow the needle got loose and got caught in the thread guide and bent it right off the frame.  So ya, talk about a screeching stop!!!

A new part is on order, but until it arrives, my quilting roll will have to be put on pause.   At least I have 3 quilts to bind though while I wait for the part to arrive ;)    And I suppose that isn't to shabby.   And that means new quilt finishes to share soon!!!!  

I hope you all have a very Happy Quilting (or in my case Binding) day!!!!
