And the wallhanging is almost ready to finish. I sewed the blocks together as they were on the design wall because I didn't have the time to fuss with it too much. I pieced together some batting scraps using fusible tape that I was given, and went right to the machine quilting as quickly as possible. One of my favourite steps in quilting is picking out quilting threads. I unravel lots of spools and lay the threads on the quilt and see what I like.
One thing I have noticed is that the longer I quilt, the more colours of threads I want to use. There was a time when I picked one... yes only ONE colour of thread for a whole quilt. That rarely happens now. Why use one colour when you have a whole box of colours to play with?!?
I quilted very simple wavy lines between the moons, and was careful not to "over-quilt" (which I sometimes do because I am having so much fun) so it lays nice and flat. Again I have some unusual edges to bind and hope I can get the points to fold nicely. Have you ever called into work "sick" because you have a quilt deadline?
