This top was made from split nine-patch blocks that were Bonnie Hunter’s Leader/Ender challenge in the summer of 2013 (I think). I finally finished quilting it today. I did the stitching in the ditch on my Janome as well as some straight-line stitching using my walking foot. By the time I had finished that stage, my HQ16 had been converted to a sit down model and I did the rest of the quilting on it. Part of the work was free motion; part used stencils; and some involved ruler work. There was a lot of learning going on during all this as my machine and I became friends again and it definitely shows. Nonetheless, I’m happier with the results than I expected.
As soon as Bob reaches a stopping point on his project and clears my cutting table, I’ll trim it. Hopefully, that will happen sometime this week.
