Yesterday I realized that if I’m going to give dad’s quilt to him when I see him next week, I’d better get it quilted!
Loaded it and thought I could get it done yesterday. What was I thinking? Dad wouldn’t have cared if I’d done a panto or meander but I saw so much space for feathers.
Quilted til late last night and so far, all day today. Just finished the background stitching on the last of the blocks. Just the area below the bottom of the blocks left to do and then there’s quite a bit of fill in work to get done.
There are lots of feathers! They’ll show up better from the back side . . if ever I get it off the machine.
My goal now is to finish the quilting tonight (and that’s probably overly optimistic), get the binding on tomorrow and do the hand work over the weekend.
