I'm slowly working on the Nothing Runs Like a Deere quilt. The only large quilting I have ever done has been at church on a wooden quilting frame. So how was I going to handle this quilt??? I started with a large oval hoop, but it was uncomfortable, so with some help from a quilting friend, I'm lap quilting with out a hoop. My stitches are larger than I'm use to, but I think that will improve with practice.
The holding of the quilt is sometimes awkward and I find that I rush my stitches. The other issue is a deadline. This quilt needs to be completed by June 1. I may not be blogging for a few days----just know I'm quilting. Happy Quilting to you too!!!!!
