The Wrens & Friends quilt was loaded Sunday evening, and I started work on it. A pass or two, and I was off to bed. Monday afternoon I was back at it, but imagine my shock at how fast the looping went. By the time I was really relaxed and on a roll, it was over!
I didn't want an edge-to-edge on this quilt so I did straight lines on the border. It was loaded horizontally in the machine so the longest sides were at the top and bottom. With those done, I had to unpin the quilt from the machine, and turn it. Re-pin the quilt again at the top and bottom, and a quick finish. I didn't mark anything, but instead eyed the spacing by the flower print. Minor adjustments at seams kept things even.
On final inspection here below, I found one place I had 'pin tucked' the fabric. It will stay, but I know how to prevent it the next time I have to turn a quilt. My daughter won't mind. She's just thrilled it's almost ready.
I'm tickled at how sweet the backing turned out. What do you think? Have you ever worked with a border print before?
I hope your works in progress and UFO's piles are getting smaller. Remember the end of the second quarter is approaching for any Finish Up link ups you may be involved in. I'm hoping to have this off my list by then, too.
