I'm a Lucky Duck

Loris at Luckypup Quilter recently had a giveaway and I won!

Bird and butterflies - so pretty.  Thank you Loris! Nancy came over to sew yesterday. She loves butterflies. I had to check all her bags before she left to make sure she didn't steal accidently take them home.

While here Nancy finished this quilt...

It's called Open Your Window by Zen Chic. She is such a prolithic quilter, she was half way through a second quilt by the time she left my house.
I got about a third of the way through this quilt...then the bobbin ran out. I like to use prewound with the Juki but it never fails...the first bobbin and tension are perfect. The second? Not so perfect.


I have learned my lesson. I always check the tension on a piece of scrap fabric before going back to the quilting.

The quilt is called Hot Pocket and I posted a picture here. Notice the date...March 2010.  Oh well, at least it is getting done.

Congratulations on the win! The sewing day sounds like fun. I like 'Open your Window.'

What a fun day! I love sewing with a friend :-) Enjoy those fabrics!
The tension change seems to nag for awhile on the longarms. It used to drive me crazy. I must have found my best combos of thread though because it doesn't seem to happen as often now.
I went back and read the old post about Hot Pockets. Too funny...I have that same disease. I tend to overbuy on fabric collections and then make it a 'mission' to keep it separate and use it to the last bit. I'd say I was improving but now I have a Kansas Troubles 'problem' :-)
