This weeks question is about – Machine Quilting – do you ever machine-quilt your own quilts? Basically the answer is NO, not shouting, but emphatic, they are always sent out for beautiful machine quilting!
That said, I have MQ a handful of small/doll quilts over the years, straight lines only. I do not like to MQ, it is not enjoyable, but I love to HQ, but I can’t HQ them all. I’ve been very fortunate to have a couple of long arm quilters who do gorgeous quilting, and make my quilts better, their quilting enhances my quilts with traditional motifs and designs.
This weeks block is by our friend Lisa Bongean.

Once again I’m going to show you my pressing of this block first. I used the clipping trick and oops I see the top row needs repressed! Look at the other three sides. The iron is shut off and I’m home, pretend it is just perfect, OK?
