More Machine Quilting!


I've been machine quilting Ladies of Downton Abbey.  I have finished quilting each block. I still have the sashing as well as the set in triangles along the edges left to quilt. I thought this would be a good time to work in all my threads. Each block was quilted individually so I cut thread each time. Each block was quilted the same way. I tried to make a secondary block design using my quilt pattern. I think it's hard to see in the above picture.

 
 
 
 
You can sort of see the pattern in the backing. I felt like this was taking me forever but I'm glad I stuck with it. I still have to decide how to quilt the remaining areas. I'm hoping the quilt "speaks" to me!! I used King Tut thread in a variegated beige color.
 


I think my two kitties approved of my quilting! They liked laying on it and getting it ready for me! It's so nice to have 2 helpers.

    1. Thank you, Raewyn! I think you're right! It's so hard to show the quilting sometimes! The kitties actually helped out in that regard!
