I finished my blocks in early October. I finished my quilt top in early December. I'd hoped to have the quilt finished by Christmas, but here we are, early March, and I've just finished the quilting. But no complaints! I'm just thrilled to be done
The quilting on this 78" square quilt started off easily enough.
More quilt got shoved into the throat space.
Then more quilt.(Yes, that's a peek at the ninjas on the back. The back is...a little eclectic.)
I used a gray Mettler thread for the quilting lines. I debated going with a lime in the negative space down the center diagonal, but a lack of the right thread color had been my excuse for not finishing this quilt for a long time, and I didn't want anything else keeping me from getting this done.
Now, to bind. Thoughts? I'm thinking about using a delicious lime solid, and I also thought about using more of the background fabric. My husband (the quilt's recipient) thinks lime or green. But what do you think?
I'm linking up today with WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced featuring Stephanie from Quarter Incher!
