My quilt is back from machine quilter Nancy Sharr. She used King Tut Jewel of the Nile thread by Superior Threads on the front and in the bobbin. Unlike some people in the office, (you know who you are…), binding is NOT my favorite thing to do. However, using the Wonder Clips from Clover make it a much more enjoyable task.
The quilting design is a stylized tulip called Bellflower. I think the softer curves complement the hard edges of the rectangles. (View of the back).
The quilt is bed-size, so it’ll take me couple nights in front of the TV to get the binding turned and tacked down.
Since there are 24 weeks left in the year, I’m going to start another project. I have selected the pattern and started pulling circa 1890 blue and white shirtings from my stash. Check back in August to see the progress on my Passion 48/2013 Quilt #2.
