My Sister's Quilt

 I've been working on my sister's quilt.  My Nov. OMG is to finish quilting it.  I'm so happy to say that I did it.  I divided the quilt into 4 sections and quilted each area with a variety of straight lines, as seen in the picture below. I quilted this quilt with a 3-ply all cotton thread.  It's thicker than 50 wt. Aurifil that I usually use and I really like the way it looks on the quilt. 



The quilt is 59"x71" and made from scraps that my sister gave me.  The quilt is trimmed and squared, ready for the next phase, binding.  I'm enjoying thread basting more.  I really think that it produces a great result.  Not one pucker on this quilt top.  Yippee.....

There are fewer than 100 days till QuiltCon Together.  I submitted 4 quilts this year.  As soon as I hear from them, I'll let you all know.

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a great Quilty time!!
