Since this quilt was loaded on my longarm I quilted it before noon. It is wavy lines with occasional loops going the length of the quilt.
I cut the binding right away and sewed it on last night and started the hand stitching.
Then in the afternoon I loaded this quilt and quilted it too. I did random lines not intended to be straight but not wavy either. Picture me walking sideways as I guide the machine head the entire length of the quilt. Wobbles happen and I like the look.
You can get a better idea from the back. The perfectionist quilters are cringing right now…. I like casual quilting, not formal quilting. This is a fun quilt and it needed fun quilting, not perfectly executed motifs.
My choice for the binding is a Kaffe yarn dyed stripe fabric.
Then last night while watching TV I quilted this small colorwash piece. I have been using this one as a sample in classes for about 5 years. I used monofilament thread and ditch quilted it.
Since the backing was multicolor I used a variegated thread in the bobbin.
It was easy to get a lot done yesterday because it was below 0 yesterday morning, stayed in the single digits all day and there was 3″ of snow overnight. Other than shoveling my sidewalk and porch, I was inside all day.
