Jan 02, 2018: Jon picked this as his quilt today. (Made this quilt for Ann in 2017 using Onyx Grunge.)
Jan 03: Using a dark batik on the outer border, back & binding. Should show the quilting nicely on the back.
Jan 06: Fabric is here. Has a bluish tint that just happens to match the large symbol in the fabric. Can always use grunge for a blacker look but the batik is growing on me.
Jan 08: Jon likes the blue.
Jan 13: Prewashing the batik. Went ahead & pieced the backing so it is ready to load.
Jan 15: Borders & binding are cut ready to sew.
Jan 16: Borders & binding are pieced ...
Jan 17: ... & pressed. Binding is ready. Started on borders but didn't get very far.
Jan 18: All 3 borders are on & thus the quilt top is finished. Can load for longarming tomorrow.
Jan 19: Going through the longarm setup process. Need to fine tune my programming to match the real quilt size. We are doing an intentional placement of the panto so the borders will show off the pattern nicely.
Jan 20: Quilting.
Jan 21: Still quilting.
Jan 22: Quilted. Squared ready to attach binding.
Jan 23: The binding is attached and clipped ready for hand work.
Feb 02: Half way done.
Feb 08: Bound & thus the quilt is finished.
Feb 09: Hand delivered.
