Still Under the Needle

Whew!  Quilting this entire quilt is a lot of work.  I am probably quilting it too densely but I can't stop now.
I am well over half done.

However, I am sure I have over a third of it to go.  Oh... and I am saving the borders to do something "special"  Ha...now I am thinking easy straight lines. Only time will tell.
What have you been working on?

Your quilt is beautiful, but I have a question. Why are you using such dark thread for the quilting? Just wondering.

Lynn said...

I've been in the same boat before - start out very densely and start to regret it half way through. But as you know, you have to keep going at the level. It will be worth it in the end. Think of it this way, you get more practice per quilt by quilting densely.
