So much of my year got hijacked away from quilting, that it feels really great to get back in the swing of things with quilting!! I'm linking to Elm Street Quilts for OMG.
For October, I will get over myself with my mental blocks on this very fun quilt and put it on my frame to be my One Monthly Goal project. I want the quilting completely finished by month's end! Bonus if I get the binding and hanging sleeve finished in time for it be on the wall for Halloween.
(This is the Sew Spooky pattern by The Quilt Company)
There remains perhaps 60% of the detail quilting, which will happen in many different thread colors.
Also, this is on my 18 in 2018 list, which needs some serious attention.
It'll be the perfect quilt for the month - probably the only quilt for the month since half my days are still dedicated to remodeling work - and next year it will be available for the wall all month long!
But FIRST, I have a customer quilt to do, which is the current WIP.
Yesterday I fired the longarm back up after a good cleanup to rid all the dust and check the oil. It's loaded with a customer's super fun fabric and her really luscious red velveteen backing.
As soon as the store will be open, I'll swing by to pick up the perfect thread for it, and then go to town with the quilting. Maddy wants random vertical lines (I've loaded it sideways for quilting ease), so this makes the perfect project to break back into my normal stride on the longarm - simple to execute and gratifyingly fast to work through and pull off the frame.
