Thank goodness for pieces of batting that can be pieced together......backs too ! (I'm not revealing the back until I'm all done!)
Here's an in-progress photo......the center is all quilted. I need to figure out what I want in the rust border, and then quilt it and the little pieced outer border. As you can see, I still feel safer with thread-basting, and I was able to move things around enough in the living room today to set up the basting frame.
I'm liking how this is quilted. I just looked all over Flickr for plus quilts, and many of them are quilted the same, it seems........a quarter-inch in from the edge of the block, with the centers left empty. Not to pat myself on the back, but I like this look much better........plus, I got a REALLY GOOD upper body workout out of it at the same time ! Love that free-motion quilting .
I will be glad and rejoice in thy mercy; for thou hast considered my trouble; thou hast known my soul in adversities;
"NOW THANKS BE UNTO GOD, WHICH ALWAYS CAUSETH US TO TRIUMPH IN CHRIST !"
The LORD is my light and my salvation; Whom shall I fear?The LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?
When the wicked came against me to eat up my flesh, my enemies and foes, they stumbled and fell. Though an army encamp against me, my heart shall not fear....Psalm 27 1-3
Psalm 31: 7, 8
And hast not shut me up into the hand of the enemy; thou hast set my feet in a large room.
