Well, I have began to machine quilt the Atari 80s quilt. It is going very well and I can't wait to see the outcome. The hardest part is shoving the big quilt through the throat of my sewing machine.
Having this one done will be the first step towards making quilts by machine. A quilt usually takes me one season, when hand-sewing. In the past, the maximum number of quilts I have made in 1 year is 4. Machine quilting will greatly increase my output, I can't wait! Because the faster I can finish a quilt, the sooner I can start a new one, and that means exploring beautiful fabric.
That ouchie callus on my thumb from hand quilting is finally beginning to soften.
