I finally finished this behemoth of a zig zag quilt. I did a modern style quilting, as you can see here, marked lines with a line of pebbles, uppy downy lines, and swirls in the blue. Ugh, what a bloody headache the quilting was.
"I wonder if I have the water temperature right, oh crap maybe I should double check! Too late anyway... Oh it is right, whew. OH MY GOD did I rinse the tub enough! What if some bit of cleaning chemicals gets into the quilt.... Oh right I use the green stuff... will that ruin the quilt? No it's fine. Soooo should I rub the lines? Massage the quilt? Dunk it under more? How long should I leave it... "
Well you get the idea. I ended up just leaving it in the tub for a while (32 minutes to be exact, in really cold water, maybe a little too cold, hmmm...) I spun it in the wash a couple of times and popped it into the drier.
The rush wasn't over yet, I had to also quilt and bind this cute little number. I picked this jelly roll up at Wal-Mart of all places. It was on the super sale rack for a couple bucks. I thought it was just ugly as sin, until I started sewing with it. Now I think it's the cutest!
Needle and Thread Network. Have a gooder.
