More on Anti-Ouch Pouches and Other Projects

Following my last post, I was asked about the pattern for the anti-ouch pouches the Quilt Club makes for breast cancer patients.  Here is a link to the American Sewing Guild’s site with the pdf format pattern as well as an explanation of how the pouches came to be made. 

On the personal project front, I’ve started the process of sandwiching this top for quilting.  This is the largest piece I’ve worked on since converting my HQ16 to a sit-down machine.  I do miss being able to load all the layers on rollers rather than finding large flat surfaces to get the job done.  I'm beginning to met a process in place, though, and next time it will be easier.

That is the one big drawback to a sit down machine...having to pin baste those big ones. My husband got me a bunch of the clamps (woodworking items) from Harbor Freight or Northern Tool that I use for securing the edges of backing/batting/top to the table top. They hold everything secure and I pin. Remove clamps and then I shift to the next section and reclamp.
And the top looks is going to be so beautiful.
