Quilting in Progress

Yea, it’s finally Saturday!  I love Saturdays!  I tried to take some pics of the quilting in progress on my Mom’s quilt.  I had trouble getting a very good shot, but I think you can see well enough.000_5017.jpg000_5004.jpg000_5007.jpg

I remember, not so very long ago, when I thought I would NEVER be able to do freehand CC.  I am finally getting so much better at it.  Not perfect, but it’s so much better.  I say this, not to be bragging, but as an encouragement to newbies to keep PPP-ing.  It will get better!:-) 

BTW, if you are new at this blogging stuff, if you click on the small pics, or the preview box that pops up, you will be able to see the bigger picture, and can even zoom in. 

Next, I want to play along with Gayle’s quilting meme.

If you want to play along, copy this list to your blog and then follow the rules. (Here is a tip: copy and paste it into a Word document for easier formatting. If you highlight the list in Word, then click Edit, then Clear formatting, it will speed up the process.) Have fun!

Of course, I did not follow the instructions.  I simply copied and pasted from Gayle’s blog to mine, and went down the list.  So if it looks a little messed up, you might want to copy from Gayle’s blog.

Hope you have a great weekend!

  1. Why is it that sometimes I don’t get the smiley face? And just the symbols? Anyone know? Like right after the paragraph about the CC in the above post? 🙂


  2. I don’t know, but sometimes I go back into edit, add a space and they come in, sometimes they don’t… I think we need blog school… I personally think some of my widgets are possessed……

    I love how the quilt looks!! Your mom is going to love that.
