Quilting My Latest Seven Sisters
I am quilting two rows at a time and I have now reached the mid point of my first pass across the quilt. If I can keep up with this pace, I should be able to make one quilting pass each week which would equal two rows per week. The quilt is 75" x 85" and each row of fans are approx. 5" so.....I should be finished in 8 weeks or so. But I don't live in a perfect world so I am hoping to have it done in 3 months. We will see if I can achieve that little goal!
This is the first time I am using Tuscany Cotton/Wool blend for the batting and it is lovely. Even though the quilt is large it is not heavy and that makes it a lot easier to move around and to quilt. So much easier on my shoulders! This batting can be quilted up to 4" apart and that is not a problem when doing an all-over quilting design.
I got up early this morning to do a bit of quilting before I go to work and now I have to put it away. When I come home this evening I plan to do a bit more. A perfect way to start and end my day!
