Major progress happened yesterday on May's UFO. It definitely was not the quilting fairies that showed up to do the work... just ask my sore back!
The quilt was pin basted.
Bobbins were wound.
I always begin quilting a project by winding 3 bobbins to give me a running start. This quilt is getting blue thread in the bobbin and taupe thread on top to blend with the variety of colours in the quilt. Of course I am using Aurifil... my sewing machine's favourite thread!
And then the quilting started. I decided to quilt all straight lines - between the block vertically and horizontally, and then diagonally through the chains. It's a bit boring, but the quilt didn't want an allover design... so straight lines it is!
Less than 3 days days until the end of May, and the end is in sight!
