Sometimes endings are just as good as beginnings.
Today I'm putting the finishing touches on this crazy quilt. I opted for continuous eight free motion quilting, which I like to work in rows across the width of the quilt. With only 10 or so inches exposed, I can maneuver with (relative) ease thanks to the generous harp space and adequate quilting table of my Juki TL 2010 machine. Still loving it!
And then comes my favorite part - trimming the quilt edges! Somehow it always looks better now than it did as a quilt top. More substantial, mostly, and nice straight edges. To cut square corners I use my regular quilting ruler, matching horizontal ruler lines with the previous cut edge and also matching them with perpendicular seams in my piecing.
Ok, just add binding! Finished quilt coming right up...
Happy week-endings, all!
