Cottage Lane, a top that I pieced in 2015, became the first to be quilted on my new machine.
I taped the back down on the floor, layered the batting and top to make the "sandwich," and began pinning...
noticed a mistake. (How does this happen with all the pressing and checking and pressing and checking?)
Do you see the turned section?
I unpinned, fixed the mistake, and continued pinning.
Went to the store and bought more.
Ran out of pins again.
Finished pinning anyway with fewer than desirable pins.
Ripped out the first four rows for tension issues.
Went back to the store and bought quilting gloves. And more pins.
Continued to machine quilt.
The pattern is Country Lane by A Quilting Life.
The fabric is Whitewashed Cottage by Three Sisters.
It measures 54" x 68."
I welcome the spring vibes resonating from this quilt during these short days of frigid temperatures.
