|My precious husband assures me that I don't look like this. |
We don't know WHERE this lady came from !
And, WOW, it's been awhile since I've quilted anything with a polyester batting.........and it is WONDERFUL !
I started quilting on Jennifer's embroidered states quilt today, and I am perplexed about how to quilt around the embroidery. So I've started by just outlining the blocks' sashing and stars, and quilting along the embroidered 'state name banner'.
The quilt was basted on a long-arm machine, and has long stretches of thread between stitches that must be 6 inches apart. Because of this, the threads want to catch on everything that comes in contact with the quilt. VERY FRUSTRATING.....but it was way too big for me to baste, and JoAnn is in no condition to baste one the way we used to, so WHATCHA' GONNA DO?
the best you can.
