#3 is on the machine and in progress

Been a while since I simply meandered a quilt -- this photo isn't the best but it's looking OK. The thread matches the fabric exactly so I've been quilting with the lights off with just the side lighting from the window but I'm losing the light so I probably won't get this done until I come back from Nebraska.

That's lovely meandering. That is something that I want to learn to do.

I can totally relate to the difficulty of seeing the thread on a quilt top when it matches so perfectly. The meandering on this quilt is adding just the right amount of texture to the quilt! Well done!

Very pretty! I like the red and white. Have a good trip. A strings sew-in sounds like fun!

Angie said...

That is sure a pretty shade of red fabric, Mary. It's nice to just meander quilt once in awhile. It looks really nice!

I like the way you quilted this in leaving the white blocks free of quilting. It makes them stand out nicely, which I really noticed in the photo in May of the whole quilt.
