Quilting in Michigan!  been collecting the row by row experience quilt patterns from stores across Michigan. I appreciate the work that went into this summer travel shop hop....I finished my first row by row quilt and took it to Quilted Memories in Montague.   Quilted Memories is in a log cabin building and run by Jill.  She has a nice variety of material and quilting supplies in her shop.

Now I am collecting and starting on a second row by row quilt top.  There are more wonderful patterns to collect and make into quilts.

The priority task for today:   finish the binding on the jelly roll quilt so I can take the top to my daughter's home.  This was a simple top to make out of a jelly roll of bright colors and cute insects.    I picked this roll up on sale at Walmart in Sault Ste. Marie.  They were closing  their sewing department.  Gave me an opportunity to try a jelly roll quilt.   This is also one of our firsts on the long arm machine.  A good one to quilt for practice and to learn the skills of long arm quilting.
