It’s three weeks since I last showed you my Down the Rabbit Hole quilt, I’ve made some progress, it’s a king size quilt and I’m on the outer border – so even quilting one side takes time! Three weeks ago I was feeling positive as I’d just reached another corner!…
My progress this time hasn’t been quite so ordered. I needed to draw some more quilting lines on the next side before I started my cross-hatching. This required three things;
- Daylight – the only table big enough is in the conservatory, well lit during the day, not at night, and it’s dark by 6.30pm now.
- Time – always of the essence!
- Finding my ceramic pencils! They seem to love playing hide and seek!!
It took until a couple of days ago to get all three at the same time! However, that didn’t stop me quilting!
I quilted round both running rabbits and the central flower, I also quilted more than a side of the very outer diamond border.
I’m now going back and filling in the the cross-hatching, I’m almost half way across this side, so I’m getting there.
