quilting and fabric report

I finished quilting a quilt for a customer so that I can get my guild challenge on the frame and hopefully quilt it and bind it before the deadline.

I used the pantograph Deb's swirls. I really have a hard time with thread color on a red,, white, and blue quilt. I don't like mushing the center with dark thread, but I would rather have a darker on the blue. This looked nice.

I have decided to empty this scrap bin, by cutting into useable sizes and organizing, by setting a 15 minute timer every day until it's done. And then there are more.

  1. The quilting is perfect for the quilt. Have fun working on all those scraps in the bin. :)

  2. Beautifully done! The quilting looks great.

  3. I was thinking this morning that I needed to start setting a timer for 15 minutes to try to get my scraps back under control.
