Sunny quilting


It's late (2.30am) but I've almost finished quilting this lap quilt. It's quite big - about 50in x 60in and has taken a while. The pattern looks a bit like suns, and it has used more than 3 large bobbins of bottom-line, whereas I'd thought 2 should about do it before I started. I haven't done an all-over for a while, and am loving the lack of ends to tie in! I'll finish the quiting quickly tomorrow evening, then find a binding fabric as I don't have yardage of Hushabye except some of the owls - which are set aside for another project

This is looking great! Perhaps all of us who strive for excellent free-motion, domestic machine quilting should do so at 2:30 a.m! Keep up the great work.

Great work! Now I feel slack not staying up until crazy hours to FMQ my quilt in a day like I wanted to... Nah, sleep wins! I'm envious of your ability to be coherent, let alone competently FMQing, at that time of night!

Looks great Em! You are a legend, my FMQ goes crazy after 10pm!
