This is the first quilt that I have done this much ruler work on and I must say that my back is bothering me a bit. I love the look of it though, so I guess everything's a trade-off.
I asked for design suggestions on one of my online groups for this quilt and several suggested the ruler work in the zig-zags. I quilted a freehand flower/feather, (I'm not exactly sure what these are called) in each of the snowball blocks, in a continuous line.
It actually went pretty quickly. I had no idea when I came home at lunch yesterday to load the backing that I would be finished today and while it's still light out! I loaded the batting after work and quilted until about 11pm. Most of today was spent quilting, but I did take lots of breaks.
Cathy made this quilt for her only daughter, who is getting married in 3 weeks. I hope she likes it and that it is an heirloom for years to come.
Nothing new here....Permacore white thread and Hobbs 80/20 batting.
