A FRIDAY (the 13th) FINISH

Today is Friday the 13th.  
I'm not superstitious but while making the kwilt in this post
I did encounter a freaky kwilting experience. 
It began with this QUILT BLOCKS jelly roll 
and some solid gray and white fabrics.


I was using a pattern called "Pick Up Sticks" 
But while laying out the blocks 
they began swirling around in my head
and landed in this design.


Loaded on my friends longarm,  kwilting straight lines but Ms. Gammil had a "thread breaking" spell cast upon her!
 NO CHANTING or SCREAMING helped.
Half way kwilted I had to remove it from the machine.


Mad as a black cat, on Friday 13th, stuck in a tree...
I pinned the nightmare to my carpet for basting.


 Finished kwilting it on my Bernina!


Binding added and ALL DONE! 
Spell broken!


This 54" x 66" lap size kwilt is listed 

What kwilty freaky thing  have you encountered?

  2. That's an interesting design I had not seen before. It certainly seemed hexed, but you broke the spell, and it came out great!

  5. I really like how this turned out. I'm not a huge fan of improv type quilts so I like this better. Bummer about all your problems. I had that with a quilt either this week. I had tried a seam five times and nothing seemed to be working then I sewed it from the other and and it all lined up perfectly. Odd. Today I had no problems though, maybe because I was born on the 13th.

  6. although u had a problem with the quilting you have ended up with a real beauty. I too am not suspicious but have had decorator in for the last 2 weeks, due to finish yesterday but no his car broke down so did not come, could it have anything to do with the date I wonder, hopefully all is well and today he will arrive and depart for the last time
