Quilting and Stuff by Knitnoid

Moda U is Loaded

Saturday I turned in my Suffrage Quilt. I’ll post a picture as soon as I can.  The next thing on my list was getting the Guild Challenge quilt webpages built. Once that was done it was time to find something to work on.  I pulled this 2007 -2008 BOM out of the box – primarily because I have a wide back for it.

This Moda U BOM was presented by Heritage Fine Fabrics in Belton back in 2007-2008.  The patterns were simple line drawings with the measurements – no instructions on how to sew the pieces together.  Connie, the shop owner, asked me to write instructions and put together a couple of quilt layouts. I designed this one to leave plenty of space to show off quilting.

With the quilt loaded and thread picked, I started to wind a bobbin.  The winder wouldn’t wind!  Nothing I did could make it work. I called my longarm dealer and they didn’t have any in stock.  I posted my lament on Facebook and a guild member offered me hers as she won’t be using her machine for the next few weeks.  I was back in business Sunday afternoon.

I have no idea what I’m going to do in the border & sashing, so for now, I’m doing stitch in the ditch and I’ll come back later.  In the meantime, my sister showed me how to drop a block into a boundary. So each of the unpieced blocks will have this wreath.

 

I’m making up the rest of the quilting as I go along.  I tried a bit of computerized cross-hatching in the background of this block.
