The quilt with no name Right after I finished the X Marks the Spot quilting yesterday I moved over to the next quilt that was almost finished and finished the terrible machine quilting I have been doing on the Triangle Quilt. The quilting is done – can’t say I am happy with it but it is done and that is what counts. Now I need to bury threads and put the binding on this quilt also – I rarely have two quilts to bind at the same time. Everyone says that when you are normally a hand quilter you are not always pleased with your attempts at machine quilting and that is correct for me. I also know that machine quilting does take a lot of practice to get good at it. I don’t know if I will ever spend enough time at it to get that experience.
The quilt will have black binding on it and I think I will put one row of stitching all around the quilt in black on the black sashing that is all the way around the quilt near the binding seam and then it will be done for sure – it might not even need that final work – I might put the binding on first and then decide.
Now that I am at the point I am with these two I will get back to Joseph’s Coat and the applique on the Bow Tie quilt. After that back to Common Bride and we will see what is next.
