I’m currently working on my third QOV for the week.
This top was made by a lady that is in ill health so this will be her last. She gave very specific instructions for how she wanted this to be quilted.
I am quilting a large meander in the border and will do all the blocks by stitching in the ditch. She left the sashing up to me but didn’t want it quilted too heavily. I made chalk lines every two inches and I am quilting from point to point across the sashing to create diamonds.
This is how it looks after I brush away the chalk.
This is a pretty big quilt as far as QOVs go. I am using Superior Mono-poly thread in the top and Superior’s Bottom Line in the bobbin. I hope to get this done and off the frame by tomorrow. We shall see.
Also, I had a question regarding the rulers I use on the long arm. I hope to write a post about this in the next week or so. I also had a wonderful response regarding how to make your long arm quilter happy. I hope to do another post on this in the near future as well. I so appreciate your comments and questions.
