And that’s that. I finished this top just in time to go pick up my 7700. It was a side trip into a type of quilting I don’t expect to do often. I’ll finish it eventually but for now I’m happy that the top is done. The next couple of days will be quilting-light so it was nice finishing something before Monday night’s quilt guild meeting/my mom’s knee replacement surgery/etc.
Oh, and yes, I know none of the points match. The points don’t match because I offset all the rows by design. Don’t call the Quilt Police down on my. And speaking of the Quilt Police: you know that advice about not checking out the kitchen of a restaurant you like? Well, don’t look at the back of this quilt top, it’s terrible. It’s not up to my standards. Part of it was pieced during the class and I was in a hurry, I had the wrong foot on my machine etc. I’ve already posted about the issues I had with the dark grey fabric.
I bought the Janome Quilt Binder Set today. I got a real good deal on it but it was still not cheap. I justify the purchase because I HATE BINDING quilts. Yes, both binding by hand and by machine (slightly less by machine).
