Because it is so hot out and I would have to pound nails in my fence again (my husband removed them wondering why they were there), I am not clipping the quilt outside to photograph. Another day. I did take a corner shot of it inside. I quilted it on Bailey with Glide thread. No mishaps, just noisy. I need to learn how to better make a flange going around the windows, this is not the best. I love crumbs. I will be taking a seminar with Victoria Findlay Wolfe at Quilting by the Lake in July as I won a scholarship, so I will be making more crumbs. Love those scraps! If you don't, send them to me!
My son turned 32 last week. I tried to make him a photo card quilt. I used a photo of him playing guitar and ran it through the filters of Picmonkey using a number of different effects. In Word, I brought them all together and printed it on those premade fabric sheets on my inkjet printer which was acting up leaving red lines. I layered it on batting and Timtex interfacing. I first stitched the outlines with Superior metallic thread, but it did not like the stiffness of the fabric. The rest of the FMQ, I used YLI invisble thread on top and Glide in the bobbin. It is not the best job due to the inkjet printer and fabric stiffness. I clipped it to cardstock and used a large manilla envelope to hold it. It is 8.5 x 11. He loved it, so I guess that is all that counts. In his day job, he is a purchasing manager, but the guitar is what he loves to do.
