Every summer there is a Milling Frolic in the community where I grew up. It is a celebration of history, of Gaelic singing, of music and dancing and an occasion for reunions and remembering. I always contribute stitching to their fancy booth usually aprons or potholders or other small items. When I asked my sister what they needed she hesitated a moment then said "we don't have anything big for tickets. How about a quilt?" Oh my !! Time was short .... A machine quilted lap quilt would have to do. No time for hand quilting.

My machine quilting needs a lot of polishing. My goal this winter will be to improve this skill.
