Dusting off the old quilting machine
Well, I probably won't get all 100 quilts done in 3 weeks, but if I can use both quilting machines at the same time, I can certainly make a bigger dent in the pile! I had my old quilting machine set up in the living room for the past year or so, but haven't used it yet. This quilt has been on the frame this whole time. I have to admit, it is a bit awkward because things are somewhat cramped and I want to move some things around a bit to make some more room to maneuver, but it wasn't as bad as I had envisioned.
Of course, I had better start off slowly, because this machine isn't robotic and I have to push and pull it and I can already feel my shoulder starting to ache. I don't want to throw it out on the first day. So, for today, this will be the only quilt I do. I may go in and try to move some things, or I may just wait until tomorrow to do the next quilt or any more heavy lifting.
9 more days of school and then I can quilt all day if I want to without the worry of injury and not being able to go to work.
