Bertha has wheels

Big Bertha is now packed in this (rolling) bag (minus the tag!) and ready to go.

We are meeting Sherry for lunch and shopping, then this evening we are taking a quilting class.

These are the fabrics I picked for my quilt. I may end up in a corner with a dunce cap on before the evening is over. I can now thread Bertha w/o dragging out the book, but that is about it. Need to wind a new bobbin? (and I will once I get my thread for the quilt) Gotta get out the book.
Wish me luck!

Those colors are beautiful. What pattern are you making? I love quilts, but just don't have the patience to make them.

I smile as I watch you taking on the "quilting bug." So reminds me of me in my thirties and forties. Now in my fifties, I sit back and enjoy looking at all I made. Your colors are beautiful. Perfect for the season.

It's a good thing that beast has wheels...heck it's so fancy schmancy I'm surprised it doesn't come with valet parking!

Good luck with Bertha and your quilting class. I have sewn for years and did quilting a few years back. I still return to cross stitch. Wish I could get in the quilting mood to use up the fabric I have in my stash. Waiting to see your work. You will have fun.

Love, love, love the fabric you picked for your Quilt, Tina! They are so perfect for the Season upon us. You did GOOD! I can't wait to see your first quilt! I have always wanted to learn this craft, too~but never persued it. I just marvel at the work of all Quilters!!!

BB definitely looks all comfy and cozy, how nice that she's gotten out of the house for a breath of fresh air. Tee Hee She sure doesn't know what she's all in for, huh? I can just see her helping you to whip out quilt after quilt after quilt. :-)
