All those thousands of stitches… Tis done 🙂
For hand quilting, it hasn’t taken too long, nor has it totally destroyed my fingers. But I am very glad to get my dining table back! The really nice thing about hand quilting (well, apart from the texture, that is) is that there’s no going back to bury the ends and tidy everything up, you tidy and bury as you go.
Still to do is trimming it out; making the label (the transfer sheet is printed, I just have to iron it onto fabric); cutting and stitching together the binding strip; and finally, stitching on the binding and hand hemming it all down.
Sorry the picture’s a bit dark and dull. It’s rather gloomy and pouring with rain outside, so I’m making do with dull daylight and artificial lights. No complaints here, though, it’ a good bit cooler too, at only 26°C/79°F
Fingers crossed we have some sunny weather when I have the finish to show you!
