Roll Roll Cotton Boll..and a Change of Plans
I put Roll Roll Cotton Boll on the quilt frame early yesterday morning and I finally finished the quilting today. I can't believe how long it took me to quilt it. I had a lot of issues with my quilting, thread, operator error, etc, and there are still some skipped stitches that I need to fix up but I will do that on my regular sewing machine later. I really do think I would have done a better job on my Janome 6600 and I would have got it done a lot quicker too! I guess I just have to chalk it up to time spent learning and practicing...but I do hope it gets better really quickly because at this rate I will just about double my time spent quilting and my frustration level has significantly increased too! I love this quilt and it will be staying with me. I need to make the binding and attach it and one more important thing I must do is to come up with another name for it and I am having a lot of trouble with that for some reason.

I had been planning on quilting a couple more quilts this month before moving on and finishing up the projects that I have in progress - Leftovers, Jacob's Ladder, the brown quilt for Rainbow Scrap Challenge, etc., but I have decided to give the brown quilt as a Christmas gift to dear friends of ours. So that quilt, along with Orca Bay, will be receiving the bulk of my attention for the next little while.
I am linking up with Needle and Thread Network which is an open blog to bring Canadian fibre artists or creative stitchers and sewists together.
