I got one quilted over the long weekend

I headed down to my mothers house on the Gold Coast with great intent of getting at least 4 quilt tops from my stash quilted. However the quilting machine had other ideas and kept breaking it's thread every 10 inches or so. So it was slow going just to get one quilt top done. Anyhow, I think it turned out pretty good and it will be a gift to my sons girlfriend for her birthday in July.

Other than that, I went to visit one of my dear friends in the country town of Canungra and spent the most wonderful day with her just looking at the surrounding hills and watching the clouds roll in bringing an afternoon shower of rain. My mother came back home with me Sunday arvo and we visited Miss Chelsea on our way through from the Coast. We also had Princess Mia stay over night Sunday and spent some quality time together which we both love to do.

I hope you all had a wonderful Easter and stayed safe. I look forward to seeing your photos too.

Cheers and Blessings, Julie

I am glad you got one quilt done and it looks fantastic. What thread did you use? I love quilting with Rasant top and bottom.

Miss Chelsea is very cute a wonderful age.
