Yes, It’s finally finished! I’ve only had the top finished since the end of May, so I suppose two solid weeks of quilting isn’t ridiculous, but it seems like forever. Maybe because we #twilters and others started this mystery quilt late last fall as we gathered and cut our scraps. Maybe because we pieced along all winter and early spring as the design was revealed. Maybe because by the time I assembled it, the blocks weren’t exactly, um, flat. But now it’s done, and very pretty!
To deal with the waviness, after I had spray basted this quilt, I machine basted it through all the blocks with water-soluble thread. Then I abandoned my original quilting thoughts for a design that fell mostly on the seam lines and in the flatter spaces.
It all washed up pretty flat and straight in the end. Some of the quilting lines look like I was under the influence of something, but that’s what happens when you quilt over bumpy ground. All in all, it’s very successful. I love the colors I used. I’m keeping this one, at least for a while.
Thanks to Charlotte for designing this and guiding us through it, and all of the other participants. Always fun to work together. See our diverse results here.
