It's day 11 of my 31 Day Challenge.  The sun actually made an appearance this afternoon and the front yard was in major need of some grooming.  I'm happy to say I did get one of Karen's quilts done before I went out to groom and another after the groom.

 I did a freehand swirl on this fun quilt and of course added the binding before taking it off the machine. 

I also wanted to share some of my favorite quilting necessities!

I LOVE these little scissors, they are clipped on to my shirt all day long and I've even been know to where them into the grocery store....and of course a little music helps keep the quilting moving and grooving along.

I discovered these magnetic pre-wound (classic) bobbins by Fil-Tec a while ago and absolutely love them, almost as much as I love candy and that's why I put them in a candy dish!  I use the white on 90% of all the quilts I do up.  I do have a few other colors too.  But surprisingly the white blends in real nice on most backing fabric.

 My machine doesn't do very well with a lot of threads, especially variegated, but it loves Superior's Sew Fine and so I love it!!  I also use this thread on 90% of all the quilts I do up. these are just a few of my favorite quilting necessities!

Here is the 2nd quilt I loaded today and I did something fun in the pink borders and a small meander for the rest.

This makes 10 of 12, of Karen's quilt quilted up and 2 more to go, than the bindings.  I'm finally seeing an end to Karen's quilts, soon!
