Before we left for Spring Break I finished a top from my fabric scraps for a Bonnie Hunter's pattern, Crayon Box, from her site Quiltville.
I still have to finish sewing the back. I'm thinking about attempting to straight line quilt it at home on my Brother Innovis 4000D sewing machine. I've only machine quilted a meander pattern on a baby quilt and I wasn't thrilled with the result.
I am most concerned with getting all the layers quilted without puckers. It is just too easy to lay it out and straighten it on a longarm machine's frame. I just don't wanna pay the rental fee to longarm quilt it myself at our local quilt shop.
This is the second piece quilt I did in October 2009. I did longarm quilt it myself in a meander pattern at our local quilt shop. It is Bonnie Hunter's, Boxy Stars, pattern.
I read Quiltville forwards and backwards several times researching to see if I thought I could tackle teaching myself to quilt. Bonnie Hunter's website helped me out so much when I first started quilting. I love her patterns and her website.
Thank you Bonnie Hunter!
Her next pattern I'm eyeballing is her Sister's Choice when my scrap bin gets replenished.
I'm off to get a few things done around the house then finish the back to my quilt.
See ya later!
