Bonnie Hunter's fall 2014 mystery quilt is finally finished.
I had the top done in a timely manner back in January but I have now quilted and bound it.
I have been on a craze to match up backings to tops, measure and label everything, hang it in an organized fashion, and to have a quilt ALWAYS on my frame. My backlog is crazy. I'd rather piece than quilt and it shows.
I used a panto called Sea Side purchased from Urban Elementz.
Stella, so named because she is one moody machine, seemed to enjoy this pattern.
I have left it out in hopes that the next quilt can be quilted using the same pattern.
Here she is sporting the tattoo I received when I ordered from Urban Elementz the last time.
I am still working away at finishing up any quilt left in bits and pieces in a box.
Thanks for all the helpful hints about stitching on dark fabric. I do know the white fabric on your lap trick. It doesn't work when the weave is so tight there aren't any holes! Plus, I have to hold the fabric up under the magnifier in such a way that my lap isn't really what is behind the piece. I suspect aging eye sight as well as a high count fabric is at the crux of the problem.
