On the Frame
Today I put the Tippy quilt on the frame and started quilting it. I chose a fairly complex pattern and I will have to buy more thread before I'm done for sure. I was a bit worried that I might have problems with all the seams but so far so good.
Some people have installed a light under the shelf of their Inspira frames and I can see that a light would be very helpful when quilting at night, which I seldom do. The shelf shades the quilting area .
It's still bitterly cold here with wind chills in the -30 range for several days now. However, when it is that cold and there is a full moon like now, it's incredibly beautiful, with lots of moon shadows on the snow. Maybe I'll get brave enough to go out there and get a picture tomorrow.
