Back to the K Quilt
The K quilt is back up on the wall in yet another arrangement. I might go with this one. You could spend your life re-arranging these pieces. Right now it's looking like a black border but I'll have to see how much black I have left when I am finished the dragon. I have drawn the dragons on the border and am ready to load that quilt and try something new with the big machine. I've never quilted anything nearly that complex on it.
I finished quilting Alison's circles this morning. I learned that if you are going to do raw edge applique, glue the edges down before trying to quilt them. It would have saved a lot of trouble. I was holding the edges of the circles down with an awl while trying to do a nice meander with my left hand on the machine. Elmer's glue would have been a better solution.
