61 Pieces

With 61 individual pieces for each block, it takes about an hour to put one together. I’m really looking forward to seeing this quilt complete!

Juki TL-2000Qi was shipped yesterday, it’s supposed to be here in approximately 10 days! However, The Grace Companywill not ship the Start-Right frame to Canada (but they’ll ship it cross country to CA??) due to shipping costs and the possibility of damage. Again, they’ll ship it from one end of the U.S. to the other but not to Canada? In any case, I’ve been upgraded to the Gracie Queen frame. The bars are aluminum and the frame itself is wood. The carriage has foam handles in both front and back, slightly better than the carriage on the Start-Right. The Gracie Queen is also more expensive than the Start-Right but KathyQuilts.com will be absorbing the difference (thank you!).

Happy Friday and have a great weekend!

Star Blossoms: A new quilt beginning

Since I still have time, I thought I’d start another, more intricate quilt. Sometimes sewing squares gets a bit boring. Enter “Star Blossoms” by Bonnie Olaveson of the fabulous Bonnie & Camille team. However, I’ll be using Flora fabric by Lauren + Jessi Jung. Gee, lots of Mother and daughter teams!

This is going to be another one of those quilts that takes a few days just to cut the fabric, so many little pieces not quite as many as my beloved Parcheesie quilt!

Still no news on my Grace Start-Right queen quilt frame and Juki TL-2000Qi, I’ll continue to keep you posted.

Other than that, nothing else is new. What are you working on?
