I'm a bit smitten with this one so apologies to those who get sick of seeing pictures of the same quilt! Anyway...
If you have popped over from Lee's linky, I am in the process of handquilting this beast which I inadvertently made very large and couldn't manhandle too well through my sewing machine.
I am really happy with the crinkly effect my rustic (read novice) handquilting is giving it. I quilted the triangles first, and am now just making my way round the sashed border. It took an evening to get twice round and is very hard on the fingers!
While I decide how else to quilt the border I thought I would take a break to make the binding. I've zizgagged and trimmed the edges, so they aren't going anywhere in the meantime. I'd like to get some curves in the quilting but, because the triangles are not equilateral, I have to work out a way of doing it where the quilting works along the bottom and sides.
Could there be a quilt by Friday?! If my fingers last up, maybe.
