Thank you guys for the suggestions on my quilt. I haven't washed it yet but I will try blocking it.
Cindy, I do my own quilting and am really going out on a limb and trying new things. My inspiration is Wendy Sheppard at Ivory Spring. She does all of her quilting on a domestic sewing machine. Bernina, I think. But she does absolutely beautiful work.
I took a chance and ordered a Janome 1600P DB from the internet about a year ago. (It has a 9 inch throat.) It was a really good deal so I wasn't too worried about the fact that I may have to have work done on it. (Thankfully, it is great and I have had no problems.) My husband made me a quilting frame like this. I have quilted one king size quilt from it and was frustrated because my quilting space was only about 4 inches.
So, I have been doing stitch in the ditch mostly not using the frame and my embroidery Janome. I plan to use my machine and frame more this summer when I have time to work with it. I do wish I had a stitch regulator.
I love being on Spring Break and can't wait for the summer when I can laze around all day almost everyday. This will really be the first summer I have ever had off. (I usually have to work part of the summer and then have workshops on top of that.) I am not scheduling whole lot of workshops this summer, so I hope to have a lot of free time. Yipee. I'd love to be able to get together with some of you Arkansas bloggers.
Happy snipping, stitching, and quilting.
