Callie lives in nearby Jefferson & may be able to share in the longarming process.
First contact was by phone some time ago.
Mar 27: Committed to the project. Soon she will drop by with her quilts to select her pattern and thread.
Mar 31: Callie dropped by with her quilts. Thinking of using Flames panto. I haven't used this one before but it was a very nice nesting design. I like it! Silver thread. The backing is plain white.
Apr 15: Callie & I will do this quilt together starting Friday and continuing through the weekend as needed. She very much wants to be a part of the entire operation.
Apr 18: Started preparation process. Press the back & discovered it was too wide for the longarm and far wider than needed for the quilt. Got it folded for squaring when it became clear Callie wasn't coming as planned. I was exhausted so I stopped & went to dinner with some friends.
Apr 19: Going to square/trim the backing about 6". Expecting Callie to come by to pick up her Hourglass quilt. We will decide how and when to proceed with this one so she can be as much a part of it as possible. Working all over several counties during the week doesn't make it easy for her. And it is Easter!
May 09: Callie has realized she does not have time to do this with me so I will do it alone.
May 22: Preparing the quilt top and backing for loading.
May 23: Quilting - half way. Oops. Forgot the pics.
May 24: Quilting. Quilted.
