I posted this up yesterday but as its WOYWW I thought as I had shown progress of my quilt before it would be nice to show it finally finished .
I played chicken for ages, trying to pluck up courage to free motion quilt it. Eventually I started. The big border is full of wandering clover. The little squares have diagonal lines across them, the small strip border and the big edge border are stippled. I went around the outside edge of main feature blocks running a border before going around the shapes to give them definition, finally I stippled each big block.
This has been a huge task but I am really proud of myself and the results. Yes, its not perfect but I don't care, I think it looks absolutely smashing and I love it.
Next project - pillow cases and possibly a cushion if I have enough material - something a bit smaller to work with.
My Janome 8200 is a dream and I LOVE it and would not have been able to do this quilt without it. Also my Gidget II fits perfectly in my L shaped desk space which gave me heaps of working room.
Have I learnt anything - too right I have!
Do I still love quilting YES I DO !
