Army Star – Quilted, Bound, Finished – Hoorah!

I finally finished a quilting project 🙂

I machine quilted this, mainly in the ditch but with a few outlining lines thrown in.  Backed with tan swirly fabric (a bargain at £4 per metre from the Spring Quilt Festival :-)) then did lazy binding by bringing some of the backing to the front to bind.  I did have a minor mishap when I accidentally cut through part of the backing when trimming the wadding back 😳 but managed to rescue it without tooooo much trauma.

What I did learn from quilting this was that there is no way, with my current setup, that I am ever going to be able to machine quilt my Jacob’s Ladder quilt – it is just too damned big!  This feeling was reinforced when I spent this afternoon sewing blackout lining into Gman’s curtains (he has the lightest room in the house and the flimsiest curtains – doh) and I really struggled to manoeuvre the curtains.  So, looks like I might have to consider hand quilting after all.  Might get it finished before the end of the decade..!
