Scinteallate #11: over halfway

Lots and lots of wavy lines…

Not a very exciting post, but the quilting is 60% done. In case you’re wondering, I stitched in the ditch around the centre of the Dog Star block, and kept it free of wavy lines. I didn’t want to spoil his doggy beauty, and the square is small enough not to be a problem if un-quilted. Lots of starts and stops, but totally worth it!

I’m in the groove now, and it’s going smoothly. Plenty of bobbins wound so I won’t run out and have to wind more and re-thread the machine. A new can of 505 spray baste. A still day so it doesn’t go everywhere when I spray the blocks. And best of all, a swing seat to sit in while I write this post 🙂 The only way it could be better is if all the blocks were finished.

Soon, I promise.

  1. As always each post is ‘scintillating’ as is the quilt that’s coming along nicely 😍
    We should be sitting on the swing together and having a cuppa ❤️

      The nice thing about looking at all the blocks quilted is that they become more, well, integrated. The quilting unifies them without losing any of the individuality of the designs.

    Your wavy lines always look good – I’m so pleased you’re feeling much better now.

      The coughing is abating; tai chi this morning, a bit more sewing, some household stuff and grocery shopping, and barely a gasp. I have the wavy lines method down pat now, so it goes good and fast.

  4. At 60% it’s like riding the bike downhill. Only you still have to peddle. 😉 Glad you are feeling better.
