more quilting----but almost done!!
This is an image of the quilt I have been working on since Sunday afternoon. My friend Aline's sister pieced it and if I am understanding correctly, it is the sister's first quilt. Aline sashed and bordered it.
This puppy is BIG---like 85 inches square big. I initially thought it was a 4 x 5 block set but nope, square. As of last evening, all the interior of the quilt was completed when I did SID 16 of the blocks. Some of the subtle flying geese in the border are done as well as the 4 patches Aline used. By the time the last two days were done, I felt like I had been wrestling a bear! Apparently I can do 80 ish quilts on my domestic machine but it is not always easy.
Today is the remaining border bits and I think I am just going to do "piano keys" 3 inches wide that will echo the size of the colored squares. Aline and Lorraine will team up for the binding detail though I would have at least put it on for her by machine had Aline brought it with the quilt.
Almost done----and then tree skirts and maybe Christmas stockings will be doing more than just dancing in my head, LOL. Once my Connecting Threads order is here I can get busy.
