Famous last words, right?! Of course, other things came along that I needed to work on first, and a few months went by until I could pull this quilt out again and move it along!
This week I finally had a chance to get the backing and batting ready to go -
get the layers basted -
and quilting started! Hooray!
How do you like the pink gardening gloves I use for quilting gloves? They work great!
I have to say that I was soooo excited to get moving on this quilt again, because I really love how the design turned out, but... quilting it is turning out to be very frustrating! Bulky seams, uneven stitches (even with my walking foot!), places where pieces bunch up and fold over... ~sigh~
I'm persevering, though, and hoping that a trip through the washer and dryer when the quilting is done will crinkle everything up and hide the imperfections! Fingers crossed!
