I am keeping up with my Just Takes Two blocks, here are Sept 1st blocks.
I have a beautiful Lone Star quilt on my machine right now but it has presented me with a few challenges. My client made this quilt in a class and told me it was the first quilt she ever made. I couldn't imagine making a Lone Star quilt for my first quilt so I expected it to have a few issues.
First I decided to float the top which I never normally do but it allows me to have better control of the top.
I have also been quilting one handed so I can manipulate the fabric as I quilt with my other hand.
I have to confess I am really enjoying this quilt and no longer have fears of making a few pleats or tucks when needed. I am also feeling really good that I can help my client finished this quilt as she had it stored away for many years since she didn't have the confidence/experience to quilt it. That is one of the things I love about my job, helping other finish their projects that they worked so hard to make.
I can hardly wait to finish this one and show my client. I think she will be pleasantly surprised with how her quilt top has be transformed!
