Mar 03: First Contact.
Mar 11: Quilt arrived. Pattie is thinking wool batting and Magnifico thread.
Mar 12: Thread: Magnifico #2112 Arabesque.
Mar 26: Quilt rendition and overlays. Quilting will be loose to allow the batting room to expand.
Mar 28: Started prepping,
Mar 29: More prepping. And testing--Wool, Magnifico, much larger needle, stiff backing fabric quite different from using Bottom Line with cotton & similar weight front and back fabrics. All set to quilt tomorrow after I finish loading. I won't take long.
Mar 30: Not a productive day but the quilt is loaded and basted. So sorry but Vertigo and no sleep last night has me in slow motion today.
Mar 31: Quilting. After first full row, Pattie & I are trying to see if we need to add anything to fill in the largest open space. Decided to add 1 small flower. Easy to say. Three hours later, I quilted the first row.
Apr 01: Quilted.
Apr 02: It has been awhile since I documented the final roll & basting of a quilt. Posted final pictures. Shipping today.

The extra flower you added really made the quilt so much prettier. Took away some space and tied it all in beautifully
