Before leaving Wyoming, my new companiom, Princess "B", completed her first quilt. Princess "B" is the new Bernina Q20 sit down long arm. She has 20" of throat space, two stitch regulators and awesome tension control. Her cabinet home is 36" deep by 45" long but with extensions she stretches out to 77". She is wonderful! Eli and Antonio from Blakeman Vacuum & Sewing came and set her up for me and made sure all was well before leaving.
This first quilt is probably much less perfect than I prefer because it took quite the adjustment to learn to quilt with stitch regulators running. But that was expected and the reason why it was a good time to complete one of my own. quilts.
It's not bound yet so it may be a good time to show just a sneak preview. Since this is my own quilt, the major blocks were filled with (can you guess?) feathers.
The brown around that block were simple: "l"s and then some swirls and leaves in the borders.
I will be binding this upon return to Wyoming and will then show the quilt in its entirety but overall I am very happy with it.
Have a fantastic week and join me as I link up in the evenings with http://sewfreshquilts.blogspot.com, http://myquiltinfatuation.blogspot.com, http://confessionsofafabricaddict.blogspot.com and http://crazymomquilts.blogspot.com.
