I wasn’t sure if I was gonna make it, but I did. I actually got this quilt quilted. This is the UFO older than my daughter (who just turned 13). This Sunday I was going to post an update. I even had a video, but can not post videos unless I upgrade. Might have to consider that. I thought I was going to finish on Sunday, but had sewing machine issues for about three hours. Was just about ready to give up, when I just re threaded the machine and Wala, it worked. Felt like a total idiot.
So, the quilt is off the frame and ready for trimming and binding. Not sure of I will make that my next monthly goal or not. The jury is still out on that one.
Initially, I don’t hate the quilting. But, as I trim it and see all my mistakes, that will likely come. I am happy that I decided to do something other than meandering. I just have to remember not to nitpick. I did do meandering around the lanterns, but everywhere else I did Bamboo. Good thing Leah Day has all those tutorials. While oddly, my lines look a bit straight than hers, this pattern is pretty forgiving.
