Longbourne has been started....

I have started machine quilting my Longbourne Quilt.
This will not be an overnight job, that's for sure.
It is so heavy.
I am thinking of putting one of the wardrobe doors we took off across the end of the sewing table
 to carry the weight.
It has taken me nearly an hour just to sew around the centre border to stabilize it. 
I do a few inches then have to get up, move around to the back and ease it through the machine arm gap.
Just wish I could wave a magic wand and's done!!!
Perhaps I need to have a little patience.


  1. It will be beautiful when it's finished Jenni so take your time and enjoy the journey.
    Hugs, Jan

  2. That will keep you off the street for a while, Jenni. Any when you have finished it you will be able to give yourself a pat on the back and say that you did made ALL of the quilt.
