Yesterday was a Winnie the Pooh blustery, cold, overcast day.
I spent most the day running pantographs on the ol' long-arm and got three Project Linus tops quilted.
Boy! My hats off to you ladies who quilt for a living. Whew!
This Go-Car-Go below is my favorite "boy" pantograph. I thought the cars would be the perfect "boy" finish to this scrappy lap quilt made from 6" squares. Especially as Project Linus is always short of quilts for boys. I also like that it's not too dense and will wash into a cozy fluffy quilt.
For the very same reason, I like this pantograph of airplanes as well.
Being lap-size and the fact that each of these pantographs made 12" rows, these quilted up pretty quick. So with a couple hours left before hubby got home from work, I quilted this half-square scrappy top made by the Project Linus ladies. (It was about now I starting developing quite a bit of empathy for you ladies who do this full time. Man I was getting tired.) I was truly inspired by this combination of neutral and scrappy 6" HST though and plan to use my future scraps along the way and make one of these as a future charity quilt. Think leader/ender project.

I kinda thought this quilt would be liked by an teenage girl so quilted it with a more subtle design hoping to give it a more mature look. I really do like it's overall effect, though I need to make a note to self: it's not the most "economical" pantograph as there was a lot of "backtracking",
thus felt I used twice as much thread.
Well, today is a sew day and I'm looking forward to playing with my purples and Rainbow Girls.
Stay tuned...and thanks for stopping by and keeping me company during my little Stay-cation here.
This week's Tuesday Archives theme is crumb quilts.
