I have managed to get some quilting done in between naps and Kleenex runs.
The Orca Bay Mystery quilt is now quilted. I used King Tut thread again with black cotton on the bottom. The pattern is free-motion swirls. The top is so busy that I really didn't need anything fancy in the quilting. I chose the turquoise/blue variegated thread to bring more blue into the quilt.
The lap quilt that I made at the Cherished Pieces retreat is also quilted. I used green on the top and yellow on the bottom while quilting a ribbon design. I like this design on more feminine quilts. This design can be done using the walking foot so it's a little easier on the body to quilt it.
I cooked my first whole chicken in the crockpot this week. A great success!! The recipe and photos are on my recipe section of this blog. Enjoy!
