I got the quilting done on the blue and yellow quilt this week. When we left off, I had the top constructed and was deciding on a border.
I did choose to put a narrow white border on to preserve my star points. Then I loaded it on the longarm, and began quilting.
I used white Glide in the top and Bottom Line in the bobbin.
The batting is Hobbs Cotton Wool blend, and gives beautiful definition to the stitching.
The pantograph is called Pansies by Urban Elementz.
I think the combination of pantograph and batting softens the edges of the design.
I finished the quilting in a day.
All done, I think it will be a nice addition to my trunk show.
After a day of quilting, I was in the mood to do a bit of creative cooking, so I tried another recipe from the new Tuesday Nights Mediterranean cookbook from Milk Street. The Greek Style Spinach Rice with Shrimp and Dill looked delicious and had all the ingredients needed. So, I picked one up and made this recipe over the weekend. It was fabulous! Both My Sweet Babboo and I enjoyed it, and it will be going into the regular meal plan here.
It was so good!!! I’ve earmarked several more recipes to try from this cookbook. It is nice to have something different for a change. Download the recipe from Milk Street – Greek Style Spinach Rice
I put a yellow fabric binding on the front side of the quilt by machine, and will be working on the hand sewing part this coming week.
What is on your sewing agenda for this week?
