So with all of those hours logged in the car last Thursday and Friday I didn't get a whole lot of sewing done. I did manage to chain piece part of a section for my turning twenty again quilt. These will get turned into 4 patches in the next step and then I'll be able to start putting these very large blocks together.
Saturday I did manage to meet up with the long arm who had my two quilts. I typically use someone in Elizabeth City, NC where I grew up but she has been having trouble with her machine lately so I ventured out and tried someone new. It was an adventure to say the least. I love the quilting that she did on these but the fact that she is a smoker has turned me off a lot. So I'm not sure that I'll be using her again in the future. If anyone knows of any good long arm quilters would you please do me a favor a leave a comment with their info? I have a few names I have been seeing popping up over on Instagram lately but shipping cost back and forth is also a concern for me. I know the easiest solution would be to just bit the bullet and learn to quilt them myself on my domestic machine. So if you have good tips on making that less scary I'd love to hear those too.
I guess that's it for me. I did just finish sewing the binding on my Swoon quilt last night so look for finished photos of that one soon. Still debating binding options for Complications so that one may be just a little longer. Head on over to Lee's and see what everyone else is up to.
