Recently I've been working on catching up on my quilting. I've got lots of quilt tops around that are ready to be quilted. I've even picked out binding and backing for many of them too! After getting some technical difficulties with my machine worked out and doing more research about using a quilt frame, I'm getting some of these completed!

Watching longarm quilting DVDs and looking at lots of quilting designs has gotten me inspired to get going on these tops. No to mention, to justify making some more quilt tops I should probably finish the ones I have! Problems with my machine and learning to use my new frame held me back from quilting for awhile. This is supposed to be fun isn't it? Have you ever run into a quilting road block? Or maybe even a few? I'm happy to say I think I've pushed past mine and I'm ready to continue. Now my quilting spirit is renewed and I'm ready to go!
I was kind of planning on having this done before Christmas, but I just ran out of time and inspiration. I couldn't decide how to quilt it, if I wanted to quilt it on the frame, or if it would turn out the way I wanted it to. It was tempting to just put it back in the pile unfinished after the holidays had passed, but I decided now was the time to finish and be ahead of it for this Christmas! It was quilted with my Bernina 820, not on my frame though. Yesterday, I quilted another project from last years LePetite with my 820 on my frame and I'm really pleased with how it turned out. Once I get that one trimmed up a bit I'll be sure to take some pictures to share.
