Yesterday At the Heart of Quilting, a local long arm quilting store, needed someone to pretend to be a customer while Channel 5 made a commercial for them. I was more than happy to oblige, especially since they said I could bring in a quilt to quilt while they were filming. Sweet! It was all low key and fun. I love free motion quilting on a long arm and told them that when all of my kids were in school that I wanted to come down to Des Moines all the time to quilt. Since time was limited, I brought my smaller I-spy quilt did a large all over flower design. The quilting really shows up well on the back. I used minky fabric for the first time as a backing. It is awesome!
I have been getting a lot done, but I still feel like I am drowning in projects. So I want to get old school WIP Wednesday today and make a comprehensive list of my WIPs. I didn't think there were this many....
