After our morning walk I got started working on the Red Love quilt. First I had to figure out the stupid bobbin winder. I want to use Aurifil thread - I have a spool of red I ordered for this quilt. But, I couldn't get the damn stuff to anchor itself to the bobbin so that it would wind. It just kept slipping. I tried some polyester thread and it wound on there fine. Darrell suggested that I just tie the red thread to the polyester that was already on the bobbin. Great idea - that worked! So I got one bobbin wound and started quilting.
I'm using the HandiQuilter Versa-tool ruler. Doing little arches - and I'm doing much better than I thought. I was practicing with this ruler yesterday and was having a difficult time. Maybe sometime in my sleep last night my brain figured out how to use it. It's looking good!
I got maybe half of it quilted, but it took hours. I finally had to quit because it was too hot up in the studio. It's supposed to be 95 degrees today. Too hot.
