The little shoo-fly quilt is so busy, I decided to quilt the starry background in simple diagonal parallel lines with black thread. I marked the first seam with blue painter's tape, adding angles at the outer border.
I used the width of the foot and the bar on the walking foot to quilt seams approximately 1/2 inch apart in the background, skipping over the shoo-flies and green border.
Last night, Johnny inspected the quilting and helped me look for any threads I missed while I trimmed ... or maybe he was just trying to convince me it was time to go upstairs.
I also started a new knit project–here's a photo of the project and the gauge swatch I started last night.
I've been in the mood to knit cables and this little book, Hats–A Knitter's Dozen, grabbed my attention when I visited Village Wools in Albuquerque while my sewing machine was at the mechanic. I hope this heathery blue-gray yarn will be light-colored enough that the lovely aran patterns will show. The yarn shop was lovely and inviting. If it were closer, I think I could spend a lot of time exploring all the books and patterns.
