I've not forgotten you

I've just been mad busy. Next week I am off getting some training to improve my longarm skills and I have a lot of customer work to get done before I go. I will be taking my machine with me so even when I am not being taught I will not be working on the longarm. Not a problem I have plenty of other things to keep my busy, and I might even get more time to post.

The next quilt I need to work on is one of those tight lipped quilts that won't tell me what it wants to be. I really hope it starts talking as I am working on it today! I did suggest to the owner that I could try poking it with pins to make it talk but she wasn't keen. I guess I will just have to try kinder techniques of looking at it and stroking it until it talks.

On the bright side I should have a couple more quilts to share with you once I have talked to their owners. Now off to pet a quilt.

Ferret, you are so funny...I love the concept of "tight-lipped quilt." I am sure you will have it singing...

Oh that is too much. I have taken a break because it is singing so happily I have run out of bobbins and needed to fill more. So you are quite right. I did get is singing.

I've realised that is what makes me love or hate a quilt. Not the design, not the fabrics, but how it talks to me. This one is such a happy quilt, how could I not love it.
