I have loaded the memorial quilt that I have been avoiding to quilt so long on Bernie. Loading on a longarm really is so easy and the lack of 505 spray & endless smoothing while on my knees made me feel like there is hope in this purchase.
For this quilt I was using ladies shirts. All sorts of different patterns & materials. The family wanted to use the quilt in their house in Vermont - so we agreed on the traditional Bear Paw pattern.
I find the Bear Paw pattern quite a strong and bold pattern so I wanted to use a softer pattern for the quilting. I decided to use a pattern that I had made easily on Day 5. I call it the Octopus Flower - I'll post the pattern soon.
