Mr. Triangle Quilt and I had a date with the long-arm on Sunday, and now it’s officially quilted!
Beware – this is a picture heavy post because I’m just SO happy with how well the quilting turned out.
I was having a hard time figuring out how I wanted to quilt this. Originally I was thinking straight-ling quilting, but then I figured that would take me forever (it’s roughly king-sized). So I started looking at computerized designs. I didn’t want anything too ‘swirly’ or anything with sharp edges. Then last weekend Gretchen & I were texting each other different designs we found online and together we found one that I really liked. It’s called ‘Double Bubble’. About half way through the quilting, Gret decided they look like olives, and I agree!
The top thread is lime green and the bobbin thread is a silvery-gray. I am so happy with how it turned out! The backing fabric is 108″ of Moda black, although it looks gray in the final photo due to the lighting at the long-arm shop.
At some point this week I would like to bind it. Binding strips are cut and ready to be pieced. I just need to hunker down and tackle that last step of the project….and it’s my least favorite part, so I’m REALLY not looking forward to it!
My goal is to have it finished by Sunday. Wish me luck!
