1st Quilt off Millie is D.O.N.E!

I have been so excited about sewing on Millie that I pretty much get done feeding the lil’ Steams, get them to bed and head down to the craft cave to sew. Every time I go down there and see her it so surreal to have my own long arm.

I finally got my first quilt done. Remember the blue Irish chain that I had loaded? Well it took me a month but I got it DONE! There was a LOT of stippling. All the white areas were stippled and the chain itself got orange peels.

I am really happy with how the stippling looks. The blue flowers in the center were left alone and they popped out really nice. The stippling gave me a lot of practice. But phew it took a long time. It took me about 20 min to do each of the white diamonds. You can see the orange peel a little in this shot too. It was super easy to do. And I love using it on squares like the Irish Chain because you don’t need to mark anything.

And here’s the Irish Chain FINALLY where it belongs. It only took 9 years to get this on my bed!Irish chain quilting done

I can’t wait to get my next quilt loaded!
