Grandma took machine quilting and machine applique classes from Harriet "back in the day" and then taught me. A few years ago, thanks to Grandma, I attended a "boot camp" style Machine Quilting retreat with Harriet and learned a LOT. This kind of quilting is practical and artful, with an emphasis on the quilting line, not the thread - the quilts never have that thready "scribbled over" effect. Hurray for monofilament thread in the needle, cotton in the bobbin!
While in Denver I photographed Al's and my Grandma's quilts. I am working on those blog posts... stay tuned!
