Super Bowl Quilting

GO_Panthers (Large)

We are not a sports household. Football, basketball, baseball or hockey are never on our TV. However, it seems we’ve caught a bit of the Panthers Fever! Being in the Charlotte region, it is very contagious. We will have the game on today. Oh, there will be channel changing, but I’m sure we’ll stick to it for the fourth quarter. I even made Super Bowl Sunday worthy food!

Leading up to game time, I’ve decided to work in the studio a bit. I got my Studio Pro Big Shot cutting machine out and cut a collection of strips.

I don’t use this machine often, but I do love how perfect each strip is cut. I now have enough done for a quilt I have in mind, but will put them away and take them to the April Quilt & Sew-In Retreat. (I like to have easier projects to work on when I am leading a retreat).

While watching the game, I will continue to do the hand applique on my Kim Diehl quilt. I have one panel done – 3 to go. It is slow going, but I can see how this process can be addicting.

Hopefully in the next couple of weeks I’ll have a finish – one quilt is ready to go to a long arm quilter and I have been working diligently on quilting one on my machine (a process I do not really enjoy – would rather piece). I would like to shorten this list but it seems I keep adding to it!
