I'm quickly checking in to link up to
Needle and Thread Thursday and to show
how things are going on the charity baby quilts.
First, a finish!
I hit a big glitch on Written in the Stars that set
me back a few hours. Funnily enough though,
I think it adds to the look. I'll post more about that
next Tuesday but for now, note the strips at the
top and bottom--these were added after I quilted
the entire body of it.
Don't zoom in too much on that straight-line quilting.
It's easy enough to keep straight but I was frustrated
and just trying to get it done so I rushed it. Sigh.
Don't do that.
But I do love how the quilting turned out.
This was my first time using this pantograph and it
might now be my favorite. I enjoyed it so much
that I just used it on both quilts.
(I originally had other ideas.)
Pinwheel Circus is just an hour away from being
a finish as well. (It looks a little wonky above but
it's not.) Once I complete this post, I'm getting
the binding on. It's already trimmed and the
binding and label are both made.
I'll then be packing them up to turn in to the
charity drive/contest. I'm not concerned about
winning but I do want to turn in quilts that I can
be happy with--aka, not projects that are just
thrown together. Mission complete!
