Happy Mother’s Day to all of you moms out there! I think I speak for most when I say I’d like nothing more than to see my kids today. That won’t happen, but I will get some slow stitching in. I’ve basted the vintage quilt I purchased and deconstructed last week and begun quilting.
Were you expecting something other than Baptist fans?
And I’m using my new to me quilt frame! This is my Mother’s Day gift from Mr. Wonderful.
I found it on FB Marketplace. It folds completely flat.
I had never seen a frame like this before. The basted quilt is placed over the base and the frame is set on top to hold it in place. It is beautifully made from solid oak.
It was made by Heartland Quiltworks. Sadly, it appears they have gone out of business.
The quilting space is about 22 by 30 inches. Years ago, I hand quilted using hubby’s grandmother’s floor frame. Using this is a lot like that. I’ve placed it in the corner of my family room. I can turn it to watch TV or to look out the windows. The natural light is wonderful! When I’m not quilting, I close the shades to minimize fading.
Have a great day!
