I'll periodically think about blogging, but then figure "who'd be interested in that?" (or somebody in my household wants to be fed, and while making a meal the idea vanishes) so I don't follow through. But today a light bulb went off. My customers love seeing pictures of their finished quilts. I email them pictures with their invoices and I try to post them on my website, so I figured "Hey, how about posting pictures of their quilts in progress, on the machine, being quilted?" So, I'm going to give it a go (as my British SIL would say).
The cascade swirls are just terrific, you can twist and turn them any which direction you want. I am turning them so that the swirls show up in the lemongrass background. Michele from Fellow Longarm Quilter's Yahoo Group turned me on to these little gems. (Thanks Michele!) There are eight different cascade sets, and they sew out beautifully! They have wonderful rhythm to them and I thought they'd be just perfect for this project (not to mention I've been jones'n for a project to use them on).
So, that's what's happening at The Quilted Cricket today. I'm not going to let another seven months go by before I blog again. I'm gonna get off the "Worst Blogger Ever" list. (I've also gotta figure out the lighting in my studio, so the pictures turn out better -- in my spare time.)
'Til next time.
Any day spent quilting is a good day!
