My Quip – Mystery Jelly Progress and Update


Our quilting work continues… and continues. The top of our new one of our quilts has been finished: Mystery Jelly (MJ). The borders have all been sewn to the perimeter.

MJ has been mounted to our frame and long-arm quilting machine. The design for the quilting has been selected. The top, the batting, and the backing are each loaded to one of three feeder rods. The idea is that as the quilting progresses the completed portion, the “quilt-wich”, is then loaded to a fourth rod. It is on the fourth rod that the quilted quilt is rolled up.

Once the quilting is finished, the binding is then added around the perimeter. It is then hand-stitched. MJ will be approximately 64” (163 cms) wide. The length will be about 77” (196 cms).

MJ is an adaptation of a Kimberly Einmo design. The beginning is a nine-block square. We’ve increased it to 20 blocks and included sashing as a border around and between each block. Also a double border has been added around the perimeter.

Here are some more images of MJ on the quilting frame.

Stay-tuned for our progress. The completed MJ will make its new home in North Carolina.
