Finally finished quilting!

I finally finished quilting the morning glory quilt. I totally free motioned quilted it. I am improving and am happy with my progress. Today I will be cutting pieces for the two quilts I will be giving for Christmas presents. I think they will be the same pattern, the kaleidoscope. Scrappy.  Yesterday my machine was making a squeaking sound in the bobbin area after it got going, but then it would subside. I tore appart the bobbin area on the bottom, cleaned out lots of debris. It still squeaked, got to thinking I might have to take it in and have it looked at, started to freak. I couldn't think of not having it here. So, I called Dave and he instructed me to put a drop of oil on the bobbin case. That fixed it. Good.

More finishes!

I am making progress on my UFO's. I finished the morning glory quilt I started around 1998 or 1999, can't remember which. I appliqued 9 blocks for it and sashed it and added a mitered border and got it marked for the quilting. I got it basted on Labor Day and will start machine quilting it soon.
I have the Carolina Christmas top done and the Burgoyne Surrounded basted, when they are done I will quilt the Mariners Compass and the round robin before I start in on the last of the ufo's.
