Lauren wanted to make quilted ukulele cases. (I know, cool!) This is her ukulele, hand-made by her father-in-law - I think it is stunning!
She is making cases for her husband's and his brother's ukuleles too.
We quilted out 3 yards of fabric using Soft & Stable foam stabilizer for the batting:
Chelsea used the same process and quilted a cute panel to some Soft & Stable for an adorable bag. We also disengaged the belts for a little freemotion doodling...3rDegreeBakery.
My friend Debbie and her daughter knocked out the quilting on their RBD design challenge quilt for HMQS in a matter of a few hours. I'm working on a schedule to rent out time on the machine. More details later!
Here's the back!
This pretty quilt, along with a couple dozen more challenge quilts, mine included (see it HERE), were auctioned at the Home Machine Quilting Show in Salt Lake City earlier this month, raising nearly $7000 for this year's charity, Family Promise.
And we're finally whittling away at that stack of UFOs that have been waiting for the quilter (me) for the past ten years since I first bought Ol' Betsy!
Nicole's Star Medallion Quilt is coming along nicely!
Worked on a few charity quilts - this one will be donated to Quilts of Valor.
We're enjoying this machine, experimenting and getting to know Mo a little better. Even my dear husband wants to try!
Meanwhile, Ol' Betsy is still going strong, as busy as ever on custom freemotion quilting for clients. Yep, it's a quilted world around here!
