I was able to work for a bit tonight. I think the quilting is about 1/4 done.
After a few hours of yard work today, I’ve cleaned up and am back to hand quilting my mystery project. Here’s an image from the back.
The quilt top is done! I’m very happy with it. I have barring, backing and binding materials already but need to celebrate this milestone first.
This patters is from the October 2016 issue of American Patchwork & Quilting.
The majority of the fabric is thrift shop finds.
All the inside borders are done and attached now.
Next comes the outer border. I was going to use the swirly black and white, but it is too busy for my eyes. I put up a grey pillowcase to see what that would look like.
I like the grey idea however that one is too light. I do have a cut of a black and grey plaid that will work, but I need to dig it out and see if there is enough. But not tonight.
Firts of the four inner borders is complete.
It has been a bit since I have worked in this as I was considering quilting the blocks individually. I decided against that in just the last few days and have started back up.
Since I am making the quilt smaller than the original pattern, I have opted to join the center rows before beginning to piece the inside border. I must say that I am pleased with how it is turning out.
I’ve started cutting the pieces for the inner borders.
