Three Rows to Go on Christmas Quilt

Another row of my customer's Christmas quilt is done, and there are three more rows to go, plus the bottom border.  See what I have to step over as I quilt?

Lights Are Up in New Quilting Studio

Tonight Larry got the new LED lights put up in my quilting studio.  At the moment, they are temporarily plugged into an extension cord, so we could tell where they needed to be positioned.  Now that they are affixed to the ceiling, Larry will wire them into the ceiling fan/light fixture.

Light #2 is up


It's late; the wiring will wait for another day.

Finally, Back to Carol's Christmas Quilt

After a busy few days preparing for Christmas, I had time to complete (mostly) another row on my customer's quilt.  And no, I didn't switch it to my new machine and frame.  It's half done, and I didn't want to risk disaster trying to roll a half-done quilt onto a new and different frame.  Maybe it could be done with ease -- but I'll find out on my own quilt, and not on a customer's quilt.

Here are Larry and Kevin Main, who with his wife Leslie owns Country Traditions in Fremont, setting up the 2012 HQ18 Avanté (by HandiQuilter) and studio frame Larry got me for Christmas.
