All the straight line quilting is done on my October UFO! Phew... that was tough going for a while. But it's done now, and I have moved on to free motion quilting in the border. I found a very pretty slightly variegated lime green Aurifil thread that is just perfect.
Border quilting is the time when you get to see just how well you did with adding your borders, pin basting and overall quilting. If you have done a good job, the quilt will lay nice and flat, and there will be no ruffles in the border fabric. If you have a bit of excess fabric, you can try to smooth it out and quilt it more densely in those places where there are ruffles. So far this quilt is laying quite flat and all is well.
I don't know if you can see the stitching in this terrible photo, but I am quilting around the swirls in the print.
So far, so good.
One side down and three to go. I have been carefully pacing myself because of my sore back, but it's looking like this old UFO might be finished by the end of the month!
Hop over to Jo's to see how other quilters are progressing with their Bonnie Hunter finishes.
