Since it is so scrappy I decided to use up leftover machine quilting thread from previous projects. Here is the first one. It lasted a long time. There was more on the spool than I imagined.
This is the beginning of day 2 quilting a BIG spiral!
And thread number two.
And thread number three.
And what was left when I was finished the morning of day 3!
Here is just the middle area of the quilt after it was quilted. It was a slow process but I am thrilled with the results! Would I do it again? YES! YES! YES!
What did I learn?
Go slow- you need to keep shifting your quilt around frequently.
Take frequent breaks - you'll become mesmerized by the quilting and you'll start to drift from your path.
Start small - this quilt is 72" square - a big one to start with but still very doable!
Now I just need to get binding on it.
I can't wait to get it washed and ready for a nap!
And I have another UFO on the go. I have each row done so now I just have to sew those together. And you can't really see that first column as it is covered with sticky notes so I know what the row is.
I can't wait to get this done! But first I want to get another quilt quilted. Three to go!
