I know I just posted about the quilt the other day, but I have made it to a very important milestone and would like to share . . .
I have finished quilting the quilt!
As you can tell, my basting was far from perfect- all the wrinkles on the top are not supposed to be there. Oops.
As it turns out, quilting the quilt was by far the hardest part for me. I have a rug burn on my elbow from trying to turn the quilt to make curves! I tried to quilt the quilt in the same fashion as our wedding quilt.
These curves are tiny- the flowers are about the size of a half dollar (if anyone knows what that means). I don't know why I thought I could quilt like Aunt Kay- she is so good at quilting. Here is a close up of my curves.
Mine are about the size of large apples, and they still are not smooth. Oh well. I am super excited to be getting closer! I just need to cut the trim and put it on. This should be fun . . .
