75%

Between last night and this morning I managed to quilt 30 blocks so I now have 80 blocks done with 30 more to go. I was up at 4:14 am so that gave me an hour and a half this morning. I just couldn't sleep so I might as well quilt!. I am now at the point that I am rounding another corner!

For any newbies to my blog I use my home machine at Pfaff 1475CD to do my free motion quilting. I have a large flat surface to help support the quilt and I put a temporary heavy T.V. table beside me on the left to add to my surface area.


Looks like I will get this done for xmas eve!

I love the way you have your thread mounted.

Vicki,
You mean the white cone? Yes, it is quite some engineering that went into it! LOL! What you cannot see is that I used an old chalk pencil for the cone to sit on and the wood is hot glued onto my machine. I tape the cone to the wood so it doesn’t move around. The other piece of green tape keeps the thread from catching. It took a number tries to get it working correctly, but I love it. I save a lot of money being able to buy the cones especially when they are on sale!

Huh! I have never noticed that cone set up before! LOL Hey, if necessity is the mother of invention, you must be the GRAND Mother of them all!
