Gwennie Progress

The quilting on my Gwennie Medallion has begun. I planned to use 60 weight Superior Sew Fine, but I’ve had a lot of issues with thread breakage. Now I am back to my old stand by, Glide thread. No more problems. Her are a few sneak peeks.



It’s very slow going right now. Some of the quilting I love, some parts I want to rip out. Trust me, online pictures can hide a multitude of sins!

Have a great day!

    Katy,
    It’s looking lovely. We are our own worst critic! Do you have micro handles for doing something this size?

  3. Wow! I think I need a longarm! Beautiful.

    Looks absolutely fantastic! And problem areas that don’t show up on camera aren’t likely to be noticed by anyone but you. Hate to see you make more work for yourself.

    OK – gotta ask. What is Glide?? I don’t do my own quilting (pay $$ to have someone do it for me and I am going to have to start doing it myself. Appreciate the info . . . Have a blessed day, Susi
