I was so fed up by the end, that I stopped even trying to fasten off threads as I was going along, in a tidy fashion, so I have hundreds of ends to deal with.
But yesterday, I finished quilting the outer of the three "rounds". I just have to do the middle block, and the border which I have decided are going to be straight line quilted! I have officially FMQ'd my last on this machine. I am now faced with
a) buying a new machine
b) keeping this machine and straight line quilting everything
c) sending quilts out to a long arm quilter (if I can find one)
I have also started to do a bit of hand quilting in each of the inner blocks. I love hand quilting, but it does make my hand ache, so I can't do much at one sitting.
|Please excuse the fact I haven't ironed off the frixion pen yet!|
And so I go, on and on......
