A busy day……


My goal for today was to get 3, yes 3, QOV (Quilts of Valor) “sandwiched” and ready to start the quilting tomorrow….that’s a big done!!!! The deal was, though, lunch would be at the Highland Store and Cafe (now, that’s a smart deal!). Lunch was so yummy (always is!) and layering the quilts went slick. The technique I have started using is the one that Sharon Schamber has developed. I love it and no crawling around on the floor or looking for large tables. The results are very impressive because the layers are straight and square with each other and it’s manageable for just one person! Photos, hopefully, coming soon!      I/we had just one little visitor earlier this evening…….but one this sweet is all we needed! Our little great grand daughter, Payten, came by (and brought Mom, Dad and Grandma!) and was so pretty in pink….fur!!! I’ll let you be the judge, but I’m sure you will agree that the “cute factor” was quite high!!!!   Now, to get ready for tomorrow’s quilting……..

    You are waaaaaay too young to have a great grand daughter! You’ve gotta be the coolest Great Grandma ever! “My Great Grandma rides a hog… Does yours?!”

    What a little cutie.
    Looking forward to seeing the Sharon Schamber method in your pictures. 3 quilts in one day, that really is something. Well done.

    What a darling trick-or-treater! I have used the Sharon Schamber method for a few years. It really is slick, isn’t it? I also roll my batting – I don’t think she does. Three quilts sandwiched in one day – wow, that might be a record, at least around here it would be! ~Jeanne

      I remember commenting on that technique in a post and you had mentioned in your comment that that was the procedure you followed and were pleased with it. I confirm that! Love the fact that it all is so straight and centered without tons of shifting the fabric!! Haven’t done anything larger than a large double/full bed size. That’s about ‘max’ for me anyhow!

    beautiful – share your sandwiching the quilts please – I’m intrigued no crawling on floor or looking for tables? Most of my big ones I do on the 3 roller so no basting required but couch size/baby size on the floor.

      Check out the Sharon Schamber link in the post. There are 2 videos in which she does a good job of explaining the procedure. I have 2 sets of boards I work with: 1 is for the smaller/wall hanging size projects and 1 is for quilts up to double/full bed size. I don’t do larger than that (so far!). Will post photos the next time I do a quilt. Thanks for stopping by;-D
