I took the quilt with me when I went to Florida last summer and after spending 3 weeks in England with my quilting buddies, I stayed an extra week at one of their houses, pieced the back of the quilt and used her longarm (it has IQ on it and I love IQ, wish I had it too!) for 12 hours a day for 8 days to get some of the quilting done. Brought it home with me and didn't get it back on the frame until April (customer quilts come first), worked on in a while, took it off to do some more customer quilts, but I got smart! I schedule the month of July for finishing it - her wedding is August 1, so I kinda had to get on it!! So, here are some pictures of over 200 hours of quilting:
|Can you see the E?|
|Can you see the T?|
And the label!
I used Superior Threads So Fine pink, black and while on the top and their Bottom Line pink, black and white for my bobbin. I made the label on my Bernina Artista with So Fine and Bottom Line. Now to finish the placemats for the flower girls and I am done with the things I created for the wedding!!! I am so excited to get everything finished!!
I'll be linking up again with Sew BitterSweet when it is time to post our July finishes. I've linked up with Sew BitterSweet for the Lovely Year of Finishes - July Finishes Party!!
