Aug 25, 2016: Barbara stopped in today to start planning her quilt as she finishes it for longarming. Forgot to take a picture but every other block is solid off-white interlaced with blue pieced star blocks. We looked at some possible blocks to put in the off-white blocks. Thinking we will fill in the rest of the quilt top with a panto of similar density to the block she picks. She needs to buy the fabric for her backing & binding.
May 26, 2017: Barbara now has her backing...yes, 9 months later...much better later than never. She left to consider which Hummingbird patterns to use in her quilt.
Oct 19, 2017: Barbara came by with her quilt. We finished our plan. I know I said no more custom but note that we started planning this quilt in August of 2016.
Oct 31: Prepping.
Nov 01: Prepped ready to load. The top needed lots of blue threads trimmed so they don't show under the white.
Nov 02: Loaded ready to quilt. Had to fix the programming. What I had was good enough for Barbara & I to plan but not accurate enough for quilting. It is now. We are using So Fine! 402 Pearl with Bottom Line 655 Off-White (same shade). The So Fine! we are using is a dull finish 50 wt thread that will give Barbara's custom blocks a bit more definition. The white on white should be stunning though quiet.
