Champagne Sunday

I finished my table topper, Champagne Sunday.  And it’s Sunday, too!  How about that.  Bright and cheery for any day (even a cloudy one like today).  I tried some new stuff with this little quilt, including stitching alongside another row of stitches, using the FMQ foot as a guide.  As you can see, I didn’t do so well at that.  It’s amusing, looking at this all the way around, you can see how I get better at it on each border.  Very marked where the last border meets the first.  I just recently bought a Juki TL 98Q after working with a Janome 423S (their very bottom end machine) for a bit over a year.  I can’t stress how much easier it was to FMQ with a sewing machine that is made for quilting. 



I love this quilt.  I truly do.  It’s based on a Katharine Guerrier design.

Enjoy the day.  I’m off to do some writing.
