Nov 05: I picked this quilt up in Greensboro today.
Dec 02: Paula & I talked again. We are both stumped as to how to longarm this gorgeous quilt. She is in no hurry so we are patiently waiting for inspiration. Any ideas are appreciated.
Feb 15: Talked to Paula who still doesn't know what she wants. Perhaps some ruler work that she can do herself. Perhaps a block that can be repeated easily enough--I know that is custom but hey this is Paula!!! She is going to look for hex star block patterns.
Feb 16: Started a pattern search myself & sent 23 ideas to Paula.
Feb 17: Did a few kludgy overlays. Generally, Paula likes simple & not dense. Beginning to wonder where we will end up. For sure we've got to start somewhere if we are ever going to get anywhere. HA! Paula has made a decision.
Mar 23: Paula wants different color thread to match the various stars: orange, blue, yellow-green, purple.
Mar 26: I forgot that the red wire to the laser module has come loose & I cannot fix it. Ordered a replacement.
Mar 29: The laser module is here & seems to work just fine.
Apr 06: Prepped & loaded. Quilting. Photographing black quilting on black is proving to be most difficult but hey, I have the dust down pat.
Apr 07: Quilting when I can. I give up on trying to photograph the black sashing. I will just post the progress which is very slow. Perhaps I will perfect my technique & speed things along.
Apr 08: Was able to work for an hour and reached the halfway point on the sashing.
Apr 13: Quilting again. The LOBs sashing is done.
Apr 15: Got up the nerve to quilt the first 1/2 star...and then 2 more.
Apr 16: Happy Easter!
Apr 17: Watch me finish this today. I am determined. Quilted.
Apr 18: Final pictures. Going to Greensboro to hand deliver to Paula.
