I’m almost finished quilting this donation quilt. I have 2 1/2 sides of borders to finish. I’m quilting it fairly heavily using Superior’s Brytes 30 wt. thread in “Atlantic” (1133). It’s always a little intimidating to use a heavy, shiny, contrasting thread, since every little bauble shows. I just have to get over myself. Galloping horse, you know, watching The Waltons. I am sure it will all scrunch together beautifully. I do think the thread is brightening up these dark fabrics and picking up the aquas.
The stitching 1/4″ from the seams is done with the walking foot. All the lines in the squares and on the border are free motion. Some freer than others. Hmmm. But pretty good.
Thinking about binding, which I hope to get to today. On the other hand, my DH has the driveway clear and is making noises about going out for lunch. We’ll see.
Thanks to Heather at Based On A True Story for showing a picture of my QOV in her post today and linking to me. That was a fun to surprise to see.
What are you working on?
