This Is More Like It

Several weeks ago, I blogged about making this quilt top in this post. It is now a finished quilt and will be donated to my guild's current outreach project, quilts for our local foster child program.

In a recent blog post, I complained about my not-so-great straight-line quilting done on my regular sewing machine. This one shows a much better result -- that's because I used channel locks on my HQ16 mid-arm and quilted straight lines without any trouble at all. I just spaced them randomly and it was done in no time at all. Why didn't I buy those channel locks years ago?

Here's a closeup of the quilting....

Here's a shot of the back...I didn't have quite enough of the dark green for the back, so I just added two strips to stretch it a bit, and it worked...

I love the bias striped binding.

This is another three yards used up from my stash!

I love the straight line quilting! One way or another I'm going to figure out a way to do this on my frame too!
