That was a longer break from blogging than I intended but sometimes things in life just go that way. Let's get back into it again.
While I was making this quilt for my sister last year-
my neighbour, who I share a driveway with, and who keeps his eye out to make sure I am ok, kept asking when I was going to make him a 'blanket'!! He is a large man and so said it had to be really big!! No problem I said over and over as he kept asking,  then decided I better get sewing.
I used all the left over green fabrics from my sister's quilt quilt and some plain black Kona and a pattern called Wiggle Time by Cynthia Brunz of Quilting is More Fun than Housework blog.
This turned out to be approx. 115inches by 118 inches. (colours in this photo are a lot lighter than in real life)
                           
This is an easy pattern to sew and I can see more to come, but maybe not this big!!!
When I loaded it on my longarm I wasn't paying attention and whoops-a rip on both the top and bottom from a broken needle, but I wasn't looking and kept sewing!!! I did wonder why the noise wasn't quite right and then I looked. Luckily it was the edge of the quilt so was able to cut the width by about 4 inches.
Oops!!


I am having trouble with loading photos and they all look out of focus. This is the first time I have posted since loading Windows 10 so wonder if Picasa and Windows 10 don't like each other???
Think I will give up showing more until I can work this out-maybe have to go back to the old laptop for blogging.

After a non-love affair with my longarm machine since indeed I purchased it, it has been diagnosed as needing a new motor and so is away getting attended to and I hope to have it back tomorrow and I can't wait. Fingers crossed it will finally run smoothly.
Will be back soon if I can get this blogger to work properly.

Happy Quilting
