The quilting is done!!! For the last week I have been working on quilting a queen size quilt my grandmother made – and I’m going to make it in time to mail for Christmas!
No, I don’t have a long arm, just a standard sized domestic machine. But I do have an understanding husband who doesn’t mind pizza and sandwiches for dinner for the last week (except the night he made me an omlette!). I also have a stubborn streak a mile wide that refused to let this quilt beat me. 😀
It was ‘just’ a simple meandering loop with a few stars thrown in. Really only difficult in the dead center of the quilt. I used a variegated cotton thread from Guttermann for the first time and worked pretty well. And it was fun to watch the color changes.
I promise better pictures soon – for now, these iPhone photos will just have to do.
How’s your mad dash to the finish line going?
