The best thing about this design is that it's a pantograph, which means apart from the few thread breakages (remarkably few, only 5) there were no thread ends to finish-off, because all the quilting starts and stops off the edge of the quilt; one row at a time.
I even kept track of the amount of thread left in the bobbin so it didn't run-out mid-line. I was left with 4 bobbins each with a short length, but used them up stay-stitching the endges before attaching the binding. I'm now hand-stitching the binding down on the back, and pondering a suitable name so I can print out the label. Any brilliant ideas? It's for Sue, who has been one of James' and Eleanor's wonderful carers for 2 years, and who has recently moved. Luckily she's coming back for their Christmas party next Friday, so I can give it to her then - if I come up with a name in time!
