My daughter, my mom and I got together last week to spray baste the layers together. This was no easy task! This quilt measures approximately 95" X 105". It took over an hour but we did it! I started free motion quilting last week. I'm just meandering all over the whole thing.
I am using a variegated King Tut thread. The thread colors for the middle of the quilt is blue and light blue. The thread I chose for the borders is medium blue to dark blue. My strategy is to start in the middle and work my way out to the edges. I'm almost done with the middle portion which is the old quilt top my mother found. She wants it on her bed as soon as I can get it done! We decided meandering would be the quickest and most practical quilting. I haven't meandered/stippled in ages! It's all coming back!
Hope everyone had a wonderful and Happy New Year!!
