I am finally finished quilting (did not bind yet) the quilt from the last post. That was a nightmare trying to reload that quilt after removing it from the frame. I think it was difficult because of how it was already quilted. Think of a square cut in 4 equal pieces. Now, think of the top two pieces as well as the bottom right piece all shaded-in (quilted.) The piece remaining (the bottom left piece) was the part I had to un-stitch and restitch. NOOOW, do you see my dilemma? Now, I just have to make a label for it and bind it, woohoo!
Up next on Ava, is this cutie!

The above is 3.5", but I had it enlarged to 5.5".
So I have watched this DVD approximately 35+ times. Sorry, but for some reason I could not get this pic to rotate.
Loaded up some practice fabric and turned on some soft gospel music for my first pass:
I am so proud, I did it! I was listening to some good worship music and just allowed myself to be calm and I felt great. Once I finished the pass, I was so happy that I danced myself to the point of being to sleepy to do the next pass. I think maybe it had something to do that it was waaaay past my bedtime!!! So instead of, "Sleep quilting," I decided to wait to do the next pass.
My second pass didn't come until 2 days later:
Not as good as the first, but I am still very proud. I realized midway through pass that my music was way too fast which caused me to speed up my movements. I was jamming to Beyonce's, "Run the World." I found myself jerking trying to keep myself from busting a move! So now unto finding some slow jazz and slow gospel to mellow me out to slow groove while I panto!
