The quilt top is together, finally.
In the end, it wasn’t too bad. A bit of easing here and there, some slightly wonky seam line-ups here and there, but it really doesn’t look too bad, considering I started off with a brand new quarter-inch foot that… wasn’t. Never take their word for it, ladies. Always measure. The foot has been relegated to the outer darkness and I’m using my standard foot with a handy bit of blue painter’s tape applied to it to show an exact scant quarter inch.
Today, I need to cut the backing and batting, and then I’ll enlist help from a friend to baste the whole thing, since it’ll go more easily with two sets of hands. I can do it myself using pool noodles to roll the three different layers on, but it’s so much faster if I don’t have to.
After that, I have two 12 inch blocks in black & white which I plan to use to make a cushion cover to go with the quilt.
And then it will be done.
