Happy Snowy Monday! We're setting snow accumulation records here in Podunk for the month of March. In our little spot of the woods the snow piled up to about 8 inches on top of the 5 inches already on the ground. But it's still not warm enough for a snowman. The snow is like powder. I think by this afternoon that should change. Anyone else playing in the snow today?
Since I couldn't build a snowman(boohoo) most of the weekend was spent quilting. I managed to get all the applique machine stitched in place. Now for the quilting.
My new walking foot is so bulky and I can't see a darn thing when I use it so today I'm trying out the open toe foot. I really wish they made a walking foot with the open toe, it would make stitch in the ditch so much easier.
The keep it simple quilting will make for a quick finish. I don't feel like dealing with quilting on the frame lately. Sometimes it's good to get back to the basics, don't you think? It takes me back to my early days of quilting, long before I knew longarm quilt machines existed. Oh don't get me wrong I still love the "quilted to death" quilts. But sometimes it nice to just let a quilt be a quilt and let the quilt design do all the talking instead of the fancy quilting. And this bright quilt has a lot to say!
Maybe someday I can really get back to the basics by hand quilting a quilt....
Maybe. So tell me what's your thoughts on quilting? Do you like your quilts to be quilted to death, lightly quilted, tied, or hand quilted?
