What I Am Working On: Stepping Stones

I can barely believe it myself but I actually managed to get some sewing done. When I first started the longarm business, I made three small sample quilts that were exactly the same and then quilted them in different ways. I wanted to be able to show customers the difference between a meander, an edge-to-edge design and custom quilting. If you have never heard of the differences before it is much easier to just look at a sample instead of trying to understand a long explanation. I wasn’t overly concerned with the pattern of the sample quilts and just used scraps from my stash. I was a bit surprised when I took the sample quilts to shows and people started asking for the pattern. I promised to write one but of course could never find the time. And I decided the quilt needed to be a larger size, the original samples just had 16 blocks each and were fairly small. The pattern is almost written, just needs a few finishing touches, and I also finished the top. Now to find some time to actually quilt it…
