This quilt top has been together for over a month now....
So I decided to bite the bullet and get quilting.
Basting didn’t take long,
but the quilting certainly did!
If I ever consider quilting swirls again,
I need someone to take my sewing machine away until
I have come to my senses.
I used almost an entire spool of Aurifil thread,
and I lost count of how many bobbins I wound!
I wonder whether the swirls contributed to the bouts of
vertigo I experienced during this time!
To say I am glad it is finished is an understatement!
It finishes at about 58” square, and my second quilt for
I finished it with black and white stripe binding.
I couldn't resist taking this photo.....
snails do 'go slow' after all!
because this was the sky as we went for a walk earlier
in the day!
