Kyleigh's Flimsy Done

I had a busy week last week.  I finished up Kyleigh's graduation quilt to a flimsy stage.  I never did find my 2 blocks, and ended up making 3 more as one of the blocks was too small, and 2 are AWOL.  I just got the batting for this quilt, but am going to quilt a couple of others first.  This is the finished top.  It is about 91 x 91.

I also finished Buttermilk Basin's A Tisket-A-Tasket sew along from a couple of weekends ago and it came out really cute I think.  

I think next up to quilt is this Wooly Flowers Sampler by Starry Pines Pattern Company.  It has been finished since 2003, just not quilted.  This was not on my original list for the Finish-A-Long, but I feel a need to get started quilting it.  It shouldn't take too long.  

I have been quilting since probably around 1996 or so, and have had a Handiquilter rail set up since the first ones came out. This was before they had a Handiquilter machine, so I use a Juki.   All I have basically done on it is meander. I am challenging myself to do something besides meander.  I have been watching lots of videos to do something besides meander.  

So tomorrow I will load this one up, and hopefully my thread won't shred like it usually does.  I have bought some Aurofill thread.  

Well off to think about dinner.  


  1. Gorgeous flimsy! And that’s a monster size! I quilt on my Bernina 550QE. But I hate wrestling with large quilts so send them out when they get over about 80 inches.

  2. Love all of the storage cabinets you have, esp. the one with the pie-shaped drawers. Would love to have something like that for myself =)

    Hope you can figure out the block sizes for the Cheri Payne quilt

    I hope the quilting went well, and no shredding. You have so many beautiful things started. I still use the Thanksgiving runner you made for me a long time ago - was that part of the Shoebox Swap? We still do that, too. =)
