Christmas Break Day #2
The first day of break, I was pretty worthless... just let the stress drain out of me while I did a little pottering around the house. Day #2 was different... I got busy and, among other things, I finished the quilting on the homespun stars quilt.
I followed all the major seams as well as the seams in the blocks, carrying it across the big plain blocks... producing a grid on those.
Quilted on each side of the red inner border and did diamonds in the outer border.
Because the blocks are on point, the back of the quilt looks like this... a diagonal grid.
The red border provides a break between all the diagonal quilting lines... I like it.
While the quilting will probably never be perfect, no matter how I try... I am pleased that it's getting easier for me to work with all that fabric and batting on my domestic machine. I'm getting there...
