"You don't have a LapFull of Quilts when you Quilt...cause you have that BigOleQuilting Machine where Nothing touches you except the AC & Fans."
Meet 'Quilta Violetta'! She is a Gammill Optimum, SuQuiltGuided (not computerized) Quilting Machine. She runs on a 5' x 12' Stand with overhead light system and a 3 wheel roller system. QV and I have been partners since 1997.
Together we have quilted lots of SuQuiltWitty quilts (can't disclose the number-spouse has no clue) and Hundreds....no....Thousands (spouse has no clue) for OtherQuilters who love to piece the tops, but don't want to do the quilting. I design my own patterns that QV and I follow as a 'Pantagraph Pattern', and I also 'FreeHand' or Custom Quilt.
So why am I BackToQuilting....It's August in Texas....It's StillTooHOT! See the 'Rack' behind QV? Those are the 'ToBeQuilted Tops' and More are being scheduled...And....Here's the RealReason....I Want A Spinning Wheel. You knew it had to be about Knitting, huh?
Okay, that takes care of the BackToWork-Quilting part of this Post. Now...AUGUST...
August Flower - Gladiolus
August rushes by like Desert Rainfall
A flood of frenzied upheaval.
But still catching me unprepared,
Like a match flame
Bursting on the scene,
Heat and haze of crimson sunsets.
Like a dream
Of moon and dark barely recalled,
Shadows caught in a blink.
Like a quick kiss;
One wishes for more,
But it suddenly turns to leave.
Dragging summer away. Elizabeth M. Taylor
