Entangled Quilting


Entangled Quilting 66% done, using variegated blue thread, so far so good. Boy is it ever easier to do a 40"x40" quilt compared to the gigantic chuppah which is 70x80. Even with the larger harp size on my Janome, moving that much weight around takes its toll on the quilter. The next big quilt I do, I'm swearing to try my John Flynn frame for the first time. I admit it, I need the assist physically it is just too hard to do. What a whinge, geez.

Detail of Entangled quilting, spiral in hand is a new motif for me, that came out during the quilting process on Saturday. I'm quite happy with it, and plan to include it in the rest of the quilting.

Eeee! It's so pretty! The spiral hand bit looks like those turkeys you draw in elementary school. Remember those? You'd cut them out, glue them to some paper and, voila! Instant hat, for use at faux-Thanksgiving-school-dinner with ice-cream-scooped potatoes, leathery canned turkey, and pumpkin-pie-like squares for dessert.

70x80? That's...that's enormous...
