Quilting and Stuff by Knitnoid

And Plans Change



Yes, this is my new current project.  Ripping out the quilting from my Christmas version of En Provence.  I started quilting it back in December and only got halfway though it. The plan was to eventually go back and finish the quilting, but I simply haven’t made the effort (there’s been a lot going on around here this spring and summer). But my sister is taking delivery on a computerized long-arm machine next week. Guess who is showing up the following Saturday to quilt?

I’ve discovered the panto that I purchased is also available as a digital download.  In theory we could line it up and pick up where I stopped. But it wasn’t my best work –  it was the first quilt I had quilted in about a year, and  I was having issues with thread breakage.  So, I’m ripping with the assistance of Butterscotch and Gracie.  The project is so big they are taking turns.

Meanwhile, instead of going to the Guild sew day this Saturday, my husband and I are driving up to Nebraska to pick up a new sewing table for me. I know I said I had no money for the sewing room remodel, but I couldn’t pass up the deal I got on this table.


The woman I’m buying it from just got a new sewing machine and it won’t fit in the 12″ x 23 1/2″ opening.  My machine will easily fit as the opening on my table is only 10 1/2″ x 19 1/2″ and there is room to spare.

All of this means that the pastel shirt quilt is temporarily on hold while I rip and rearrange.  Although I may try to sneak a few minutes in since it’s so close.
