I guess everyone will absolutely faint on this post! I finally quilted Autumn Jubilee! YES! Even with the crummy month I had, I succeeded in getting this puppy quilted yesterday and very pleased with the outcome inspire of me.
I have not quilted a lot of quilts in the last year or so and it shows! I am not one to load a practice quilt – no patience for that and boy have I paid for that laziness on this quilt! I should remember that when I am not feeling well, or if it has been awhile since the last quilt, the last thing to do is to prepare and load a quilt on the long arm without a practice piece!
Additionally, I always load my quilts with the top of the quilt pinned first – well this time I screwed up the cutting of the back fabric by cutting it 71 inches long instead of 80 inches. After realizing my lovely error, I decided to load the quilt lengthwise, and will never do that one again as you can see that the left corner is not right, but thankfully it is a utility quilt so it won’t matter. I am just happy that it is finished!
I will now work on the binding and a label and it will become a nice warm blanket for this Fall!
Have a wonderful week!
