This quilt has been on the go for a couple of months, and I've been plucking up courage to quilt it. Finally I took my courage in both hands, fitted the BSR to the Bernina 440, put on my quilting gloves and covered the quilt in bindweed. Unfortunately it's too dark now to take a photo close up. Even though there is another couple of hours before sunset, it's dark and dreary; it's been raining all day and is still completely overcast. That's also the reason it's a bit out of focus top right: I obviously can't hold the camera steady for 2.5 seconds - it seemed like forever.
pattern: Pam & Nikki Lintott
fabric: Metropolitan Fair by Barbara Brackman for Moda.
Well the motif is leaves on a vine, but the leaves look like bindweed. (When I had a garden bindweed was the bane of my life. I seemed to be forever digging it out.) I was hoping to do dot to dot quilting on this one, but my results are too erratic at the moment. I need more practice.
I'm now heading off to the sewing corner to quilt in the ditch along the border and add tram rail quilting along the border - with the walking foot. Hopefully I'll be ready to put the binding on tomorrow and get a Friday finish.
