Millie Mouse's Progress on my Dahlia Quilt

Recommended Posts

Not that I don't have quilts to work on, but I thought it only right I steal away two days to play with my new long arm on my own quilt!  My goal yesterday and today was to stabilize my dahlia and get a little filling done.  I might keep it on another day or two before I have to do a couple of pantographs on client quilts...but had to play at least a little!  I'm super happy so far!

Sorry my name is so stinking huge too - I added it on my phone and it looked tiny until I got on the computer!  :)

That's looking great. I love how you choose patterns to fit the spaces.  That's the one problem I have the most trouble with.  I need to take some classes or buy some books or videos, or something.  I can't wait to see your finished quilt.


How did you add your name to the photo?

Debbie - boy I would love to keep it on the frame until I finish - but what you're looking at is a snippet of about 24 hours of worth of work.  LOL  I suspect this quilt will be well over 100 hours in quilting alone when finished.  Unfortunately I have quilts coming in and deadlines...and while I can do a lot at 7 months pregnant, trying to finish this one before I get to my client quilts would literally kill me!  LOL  I think I should be able to finish my work for this week by Weds or Thursday though so I'll sneak this back on over the weekend to work some more.  :)


Libby - we would have fun if you lived closer for sure!  :)  Where are you in Pa?  


You should definitely keep it on the frame until you finish it!  Call it professional training class :)



I wish you'd live closer to me and come over to the house and help me with designing!!!!  Hey, you could drive to PA, it can't be that far.
