I mentioned in a previous post that my pile of unbound baby blankets was growing. I had four at the time which were all quilted with the Q-matic on the Bernina Q24.
My pile doubled in size before I started on the bindings.
Two of the boy blankets (on the left) were quilted free-motion to try new types of thread. Two were quilted with the Q-matic (on the right). It took about half of the time to free-motion quilt them than for the computer to quilt them. However, I can't free-motion quilt such cute lizards or such perfect squares and rectangles. I definitely think that both types of quilting have their place.
I think there is a reason why I usually work on one quilt at a time. Binding eight quilts at once wasn't nearly as much fun as quilting them!
I have already used the computerized boxy meander design on my nephew's quilt. Hopefully life will get a little less crazy and I will have more time for blogging and playing in my studio.
