Carnival Corn is Quilted!

Carnival Corn came back from One Loose Thread and it looks great.  I have the binding all ready to go on and would have it finished if not for a bit of technical difficulty with the sewing machine today.

Ah well, that is why I have a backup machine!  I just have to wait until my DH gets home to switch the machine out and I'll be back in business!

This quilt just makes me happy...which is good because usually when my machine up and dies on me I'd me a grouchy mess!

For those of you who may be new to this blog...Carnival Corn is based on a quilt-top I bought at auction in South Carolina last summer.  The top is in poor condition but the maker worked at a textile mill so there are loads of scrappy fabrics in the top!  I tried to be as scrappy as the original!  I finished my top almost a year ago...took me awhile to get it quilted...good thing we have a show coming up or it may not have been finished even now!

Oh dear...was going to write a long post but the thunder is rolling in and I need to shut down the computer again...

Hope your machine is easily fixable... hate when stuff like that happens! Really messes up one's flow...

Raining here again but no thunder... yet. Need to run a couple of errands but I'm waiting for a break in the showers....

What a cheery quilt!

Love your Carnival Corn. It makes me happy looking at it too.

sewkalico said...

As you well know, I LOVE THIS QUILT of yours - it's absolutely gorgeous. I think if I saw it in person, I would ponder the scraps for hours. I love the pattern and as you know, I blatantly copied you, although mine is, I confess, not nearly as nice as yours, so perhaps another one needs to be made as soon as!!! Thanks for the inspiration and lovely to see it finished!
