I’ve looked high. I’ve looked low. I’ve looked in all the nooks and crannies of my house. Searching, begging for a Friday Finish.
There is none to be found.
I thought I would have one to share. Seriously. But I just. can’t. find. one.
So instead of a Friday Finish, you get a Friday Might Be a Finish Tonight. Or, as I call it, a FMBFT….
I’m working on a lovely embroidered quilt top that belongs to one of the new customers I told you about on Monday. Look at all her hand work! There are 12 of these blocks.
The quilting on this is easy straight line quilting. I whipped this out in no time at all. There are a lot of threads to bury, and I’ll be working on those later today.
There are two borders – a smaller 2-1/2″ border, and the outer 8″ border.
I quilted hearts in the smaller border, using Mono-Poly thread. This is the first project I’ve used the thread in, and it worked beautifully. I had no tension issues, and I’m really pleased with how well my machine handled it. I changed my needle to a size 14 as recommended and it stitched like a dream.
The outside border is a loose, loopy meander. I really had to work to keep the border and back from puckering. There’s a bit too much fabric in the borders.
I only have three sides of the last border to quilt and then this project will be done. I’m pretty happy with the way it looks; I just hope my client is too!
So, if my FMBFT turns into a FF I’ll share it on Instagram . If not, there’s always SMBFT. 😉
