Stash Report – Week 21, 2016

Moon Glow Finally loaded on the quilt frame 5/21/2016

Finally loaded on the quilt frame

Okay so I decided to get over myself and quilt Moon Glow. I’m using Superior Thread’s Fantastico’s #5122 for the top thread and Superior’s Bottom Line to quilt it.  For the batting, I’m using Hobbs 80/20 blend. Not by choice really.  Did you know that you can only get black batting as a blend? Anyway, I quilted a practice sandwich last night to test my thread and my tension since I was having problems with this thread on a previous quilt.  And I was able to get things working.  I do not have the control I want on my Bailey to quilt this the way I really want to quilt it but I decided that done is better than perfect.  I do not know when/if I’ll ever get to that perfect state but I am done waiting.  I was intending to go to the sewing machine place to rent out the Bernina long arm but I can only long arm a bit at a time so it was stressing me out to have to get this on a frame and quilted within a certain time slot.  So here I am finally.  Moon Glow is on the frame and I’ll be working on quilting this.

In the meantime, nothing used and nothing added.

  1. Moon glow is so pretty, I don’t think you can do anything that will mess it up. I think it’s better to take your time with it, which you couldn’t do with a rented machine. Your wool blocks have been so pretty, and I’m sure #5 is no exception.
