The quilt measures 88″ x 100″ – WOW. I did free motion meandering and I used a gold thread. Well, I am now half blind and have eye strain and I think my back will be sore. I had to almost lay on the quilt in order to see where I was going (LOL). Anyway, I will never leave a quilt in the frame as long as I did this. 2013 was not the best year – do not think it was a good one for anyone – I am just glad to have finished the project. Now for the binding.
I really love all aspects of the quilting, but somehow we quilters feel that we have “finished” a quilt when the top is complete, but lo…… there is one step left – making the sandwich and quilting it, then the joy of binding it! I just love making tops, not sure about all the work that goes into either machine or hand quilted quilts, and the binding on a large quilt like this is just not fun to do.
Have a great evening. Next project – finish the preparation work on my 2 Baltimore Album quilt blocks for the BAS Auction. The quilt is so large it is difficult to get a good picture, but I am pleased with them.
