I am busy this week with non-quilted things. But I hope to find a little time to add the binding to my latest quilt.
Yes, I finished the black quilt for my nephew. Could you believe I don’t know how it turned out? I didn’t have a chance to look at it after I finished the quilting. I admired it after I quilted one row then I quilted on it for two days from morning to late in the night and when the quilting was finally done, I folded it and put it in the closet with the intention of looking at it after I will clean the mess from the floor/studio (ha, ha… bedroom). That was on Friday night…and I am still wondering how it tuned out…
But I can say that it is not too black because I quilted 3000 yards of light colored thread on it. I hope the quilting added some more personality to it.
Speaking of thread, one thing I learned/remembered while I worked on this quilt: if you could choose what thread to use in the bobbin: thin or thick, choose the thin one so you don’t have to fill too many bobbins for a quilt. I changed my bobbin thread after I quilted one row and used more than 10 bobbins (filled very well on my industrial machine). Keep the thicker thread for using in the needle.

And here is one of the reasons I haven’t inspected my new quilt yet: I was there ( look at the red arrow)!
Have a wonderful week!
