My New Toy

This week I played with my new acquisition. Longarm quilters will recognize this as the Circle Lord. Boy is it fun.

Recently my mom was doing some organizing and found a box that had three quilt tops she had put together more than 30 years ago. They really are not things of beauty. I asked if I could quilt them as my practice fabric. She loved the idea. The one I worked on this week was a very large Trip Around the World. I used all of the templates that I bought and then I decided to try freehand feathering. I tried over the top feathers, hook feathers and then molar feathers. I did get better as I went along and had a whole lot of fun. One down, two more to go.
