Quilted items

I did finish machine quilting the Road to the White House quilt. I am excited that I have learned a lot doing this quilt. I have some issues with the back but I will keep working on it. Smaller items I have quilted are better. Yes, I have several more smaller ones to quilt. Don't most of us has more to finish??

I am thinking about several new tops with fabrics I have purchased. I have the concentration to get cracking on my Civil War Diary quilt. My thyroid issues made focusing hard so I put that on the back burner. I also am signing up to take a Pineapple class with 2 methods being taught, I think I will get more experience with paper piecing. I am still in the beginning stages of learning for that.

Basting is still an issue as you can see with the photo of the puckers on the back of my quilt. Practice, practice, practice I think is the solution.

Maybe Santa will consider a small long arm????
