Apr 09: First contact. Leigh has two 90" wide quilts she wants longarmed this month.
Apr 16: Using Acorns & Oak Leaves.
Apr 19: It's here. The fabric is a tightly woven flannel that is very soft. There are issues with the dimensions I will try to remedy or cope with it. Backing is prepped but still need to trim a bit from the side(s).
Apr 20: Backing is prepped ready to load. Got the batting cut. Leigh selected Magnifico Orange Spice for her thread. We will use Bottom Line Copper (same color as the top) bobbins.
Apr 21: Leigh finalized her density at 11" rows. Prepped the top. My EQ7 rendition was wrong so I tweaked the programming, paying attention to where the pattern falls on the borders. Magnifico requires a larger needle & looser top thread...tension is set. Loaded ready to quilt.
Apr 22: Started quilting. Have a communication error on my system I have never seen before -- IQ stopped talking to the longarm. Once I found them, I wiggled & pushed in 3 wires like the online help said to do & it worked. Scary stuff. Quilting again. 4 rows done leaving 6 for tomorrow.
Apr 23: Quilted & shipped.
