Design Wall Monday
Most of the weekend I spent quilting this patriotic quilt. It took longer than it should because the thread kept breaking. I was using a variegated thread from King Tut . I had to step back from it for a while Saturday but finally finished it Sunday afternoon.
I had the binding ready to go on, so I squared up the quilt and sewed on the binding before I quit for the day.
I free motioned quilted it with loops and stars.
In between the frustration of thread breaking I pieced some on this baby quilt. I had fabric left over from another baby quilt already cut in 2 1/2 inch strips so I just cut them into squares and added a few more fabrics and I have about got this one done and not a moment to soon, just got an invitation to a baby shower this morning.
Got to work a long shift today, but I hope the rest of you have a great day.
