Hold on to your hats my lovely readers! Yes, you see before you a basted Quilt Now BOM quilt.
It has taken long enough, hasn't it?
Now, don't go getting over excited and expecting a finish any time soon or anything, but yes, quilting has begun.
Well, a little bit anyway. This quilt has been calling out for hand quilting rather than just machine quilting, I feel. So, after some stitching in the ditch to stabilise the quilt, I've threaded up with perle cottons and am outline quilting the bits of the design I want to pick out.
I would love to get this quilt up on a wall soon, but as with all of my projects it'll just take as long as it takes. At least this one's on the go now and will be a good one for cosying under while stitching on darker, chillier evenings.
