Terrie McCoy has given us a sneak preview of her quilt top & the pattern she used.
Terrie, bless her heart, down-sized her quilt so it would fit on my machine. Instead, she wants a border that complements but is distinct from the panto for the rest of the quilt.
Such incredible piecing! This kind of
quilt terrifies me! Nonetheless, the quilt absolutely speaks for itself. So Fine! white thread to quietly quilt the dragonflies with medium density.
Sept 22: I first heard from Terrie & she already knew what patterns she wanted. Her quilt was too wide for my machine so she set about revising it so I could do it for her. Wow!
Sept 30: Received Terrie's picture of her quilt and started this post.
Oct 01: Quilt shipped here.
Oct 04: The quilt has arrived.
Oct 26: Backing & batting are loaded. Quilt top is ready to load. IQ is roughly programmed. Doing an EQ7 rendition to help get an idea of pattern sizes.
Oct 27: Finished the IQ programming. The quilt is loaded and basted.
Oct 28:Experimented with a fancy border ...
Oct 29: Removing the entire border after removing half of it yesterday. Still have half to go this morning. Am I a bit scared to try a third time? You bet!
Oct 30: I have admitted my limitations and Terrie has agreed for me to do a panto. Even so I am looking at well over three hours of stitching time which means 8+ hours total. Made it half way.
Oct 31: I have made it past the half way point. Will finish today one way or the other. And so I did. Finished.
