The original plan was to quilt each square of quilt #2 in a concentric square pattern (using straight stitching). After three lines I found that was going to be tough. Tilting the quilt and squeezing it through the harp (even the 7700’s nice-sized one) twenty or thirty times per square would be a nightmare. Plan B is to quilt straight lines. It’s not fancy but I know how to do it. On the bright side the 7700 performed brilliantly. I’ll put the fancy quilting aside until quilt #3. I’m thinking of practicing free-motion quilting which, in theory, should make quilting those kind of patterns easier.
We spent Saturday at a Doctor Who convention. We go mostly for the camaraderie and most of the panels we attend are NASA/JPL ones.
