Here is just a snippet of the centre of my wholecloth which I have been working on yesterday. Just 6 hours of quilting, which is alot less time than I expected it to take, I should probably be working a little slower at it for better results, and I am thinking this could be a prototype and hope for a better result further down the line as I know that a few areas could be so much better and I had a few blips with my carriage not running smoothly which needed adjustments - however, for my first attempt at quilting a wholecloth I am pretty pleased so far. It has not been without hiccups though as most of my markings were so faint I was guessing some of the time where the feathers were. So lesson learned, next time I will mark with a longer lasting pen. I used the blue washout fine line pen, and thought that they lasted a long time. I certainly won't be winning any awards with it, but then again, that is not the reason why I quilt.
It will be off the frame ready for customer quilts to be loaded and quilted next week, and maybe back on in the next few weeks when I get some more weekend freetime. Maybe another 6 hours and it will be ready for binding. This is when I wish my machine was at home with me rather than at my studio so that I could quilt until midnight!!!
