Needing to get moving......
There is a pile of quilting that needs to be done; but last week I held a Beginner's Class for new APQS machine owners and rather than put a quilt on the machine, I bought some pretty fabric to demonstrate loading a quilt, thread tension, doing pantos, etc.

I am going to bind this one up and donate it as a charity quilt.
Anyways, it is off the machine and I have loaded my li'l twister pumpkin
just to get warmed up for the next two "custom" quilts that I need to do.
I plan on doing some McTavishing on this one. It should be quick and easy.
Although, this week is going to be very busy what with retirement and all the partying I will be doing!!!
Stay tuned as I am really looking forward to having lots of time to quilt now.
