Something else that made me smile was getting this quilt loaded and started quilting it.
II got about one turn done on it today. Doing the Baptist Fans for the quilting. It's a little sloppier than I would like, but it's not a show quilt, so the mistakes are okay.
I remembered seeing online somewhere that someone made a 'sling' for the batting to be in under the longarm when a quilt is loaded. It was made out of a shower curtain cut in half longways and sewn together at the ends. Then it was hung from the table and the batting rested in it and not on the floor. I made one and am pleased with the results.
