Turkey Tracks: On My Long Arm Machine

Turkey Tracks:  November 7, 2016

On My Long Arm

Here’s what is on my long arm machine today:

The tumbler block was the Bonnie Hunter leader/ender challenge for 2016–a challenge that runs from July to July.

This year’s challenge is the Broken Dishes block.

You can see Bonnie’s tumbler quilt and what she is doing with the new challenge on her blog.  Go to quiltville.com.

Bonnie’s tumbler is smaller, and I like it better in many ways.  I had a 3 1/2-inch template, so I used it with my 3 1/2-inch pre-cut strips–except for the veggie/fruit fabrics, which I have collected for a while and wanted to use.  This seemed a good project for them.

This quilt is on the long-arm lengthwise–which means fewer passes with the long arm and NOT having to fight backing seams with every pass.

I’m using a spring green thread, and that is nice.

Wait until you see the backing fabric!
