I often use it to support one set of straps for my side clamps.
Well, this is what happens when you forget to remove it before rolling the quilt!
The yardstick is steel, so you can imagine the force this took.
It was a good reminder to quilt only when rested and alert.
Fortunately, no quilts were harmed due to my muzzy brain!
I had spent a bleary weekend on the couch with a head cold . . . probably should have stayed there a little longer. ;)
Fresh off the Frame
Despite my lack of energy this week, I've managed to finish three client quilts (start a quilting project with my grandchildren, help my daughter with some painting, and tick a few "house building" tasks off my list . . . but I digress.)
I'm not exactly sure which way is "up" with this beautiful quilt.
I've chosen this orientation for the photo, but it could easily go the other way.
The back shows the texture beautifully.
Next up were two (almost) identical quilts, done with two different pantographs.
"Quilt One" features the "Halcyon" design . . .

. . . while "Quilt Two" features "Pieces of My Heart".

Both designs work equally well.
It just goes to show - there is no "wrong" choice. If you like something, go for it!
I think half the house is rafters.
Looking at the plan, it never really occurred to me how high the roof would be. Nor how complicated.
I'm so glad these guys know what they're doing!
Now, If I only knew how to straighten my yardstick . . . ha!
