Hi everyone, I hope you all had a nice day. It was a beautiful day here today. The wind was chilly, but it was nice and sunny all day. I worked on my whirlygiggles quilt today. I have the top almost done. All that's left to do is a bit of embroidery in the border and I can put the quilt all together. I still have to buy a backing fabric for it. I'm really glad the top is almost done. The embroidery won't take me long to do at all. Now, I can start working on the baby boy quilt I need to make. These two quilts are being made for a friend. I think he will like the little girls quilt. It's bigger than a baby quilt. It will be good for a toddler bed, or a lap quilt later on. I really like the way the border turned out. I did freezer paper machine applique. This was my first attempt at it. I used a very small zigzag stitch to finish the edges. I didn't want the edges to be raw, so I thought this way would be best. It was easy to turn the edges over the freezer paper. I'm going to use this method again. I'm sure as time goes on, I will get even better with it too. I can't wait to see it all quilted. My new sewing machine is being repaired right now. It broke after only three months of having it. I think I might have gotten a lemon. But, what can I do. I did all the applique on this quilt with my 25 year old machine. I had to do some test when I changed the stitch. My old machine doesn't like to have the stitches changed. The tension gets really messed up. But I managed to find the right setting after several tries. I'm really glad it worked. Well, I have to go. I'm going to sit and relax a bit before bed.
