So many thread ends. Switching thread colours to match the fabrics made sense, I thought. But now as I approach the end of the quilting, I am not looking forward to working in all those ends. Usually I remember to take a few close stitches at the beginning and end, but sometime I don’t, plus I think it is neater and more professional to bury all (or almost all) of the thread tails. I am getting really good at threading my easy-thread needle, without breaking the thread which is what I was doing when I started.
Here are a few progress shots. I even did meandering–i used to hate meandering, but I’m getting better at it.
I am planning to machine bind this quilt, but I still don’t think it will be done for TGIFF this week, which I am hosting. No matter, I have another finish to share. Come back then and see!
For today, I am linking this ongoing work-in-progress with Main Crush Monday at Cooking up Quilts.
