A Big Finish!

I have been really quiet here lately. That is because I have been quilting and finishing my Prism quilt. IT IS FINISHED!
I quilted in the ditch on all seams. Then I echo quilted the diagonals 3.5" from the seams. 80/20 batting, Sulky #733 thread (30 weight), Kona solid navy for the binding. I LOVE using the walking foot. Am I the last quilter in the Western World to get one of these? What a difference. Absolutely no ripples in the binding. Wow. I will never be without one again.

Some of my chalk lines are still a bit visible. I love the way the variegated thread played out with the colors of the quilt. I know the photos are a bit blurry. I only have my phone to use for picture taking. Sad. I know. I guess the next thing I need is a camera for the purpose of this blog...Oh, and to take family pictures too.

Thanks for stopping by.

  9. I never thought you could get "showable" pictures with a phone (but I guess that's because I only know my stone-age phone) ... the colours are stunning, I don't think I could have made it (my stash is far too small).
