It's amazing! Absolutely amazing. After working on my ruler work sampler quilt for sooooo long, I had to work on a different project. This is my niece's quilt. I started on it Tuesday morning and by the evening, I had a completed top!
That sort of counts as a finish, doesn't it? I started off drawing out the design, which was adapted several times as I realized that 'big block quilts' that are based on 12" finished squares aren't real compatible with 1/2 yard cuts. Note to self: Buy at least a yard of everything! lol
I've started the quilting and figure a few solid hours of quilting will finish it up. It's nice to do a feathered flower all over design in a larger size for once. It's a quilt to be used, so no fancy quilting, though I may do ruler work in the solid navy star points.
I tried a new thread for the piecing and I really enjoyed it. It's Cairo Quilt from the same folks who make Glide thread. 100% Egyptian cotton and it's really nice, low lint and looks much like the other popular cotton thread that's out there, but at a lower price.
I'm considering selling Glide and this Cairo quilt in my shop. Would any of you be interested?
I leave tomorrow to go see my sister and meet baby Abbie for the first time. So excited!
