A Little Vitamin FMQ

My vitamin FMQ level was running low - so I pulled out a section of quilt that needed work to get my dose of FMQ (free-motion quilting.)
This quilt was started in late 2013.  Yikes.... it is way overdue for a finish.

Perhaps I shouldn't mention that two thirds of it has been quilted for some time.  But you see, I used a poly batting in this and quilting it is just not all that enjoyable for me.  I think it will look okay once finished, but the loft of that batting is harder to quilt on a domestic machine.  I will say it is a lesson learned.

The good news is that now another sixth of the quilt is quilted.  (That is half of that final third of the quilt --errrrr, if I got my fractions cyphered correctly -so that means that I have 5/6 finished and 1/6 left to quilt---next week.)

 I may try knitting again. I am watching a class on Portuguese knitting taught by Andrea Wong. I haven't picked up my needles yet, but just watching it, I think it will be much easier to switch between knit and purl stitches.  The class is on sale now for $24.99 OR you can watch it and many other classes in the free trial of Craftsy unlimited.

Haha - you've been reading Christina's blog! Love your quilting - and I do believe your math is correct - 5/6 done - or 83.334% - but you're probably done by now - ;))

you are getting there and I don't like poly batting either but hang in there, you will love it when it is finished.
