The little mystery quilt has been quilted. Now it’s a matter of figuring out what to use to bind it. I’m leaning towards a deep blue but DH is suggesting white. By the time I get the binding on, I’m hoping that I’ll be able to reveal it.
I learned something from quilting the mystery quilt — that I do much, much better with no hoop. I basted it, tried it with a hoop and was frustrated beyond belief. Took the hoop off and it was quilted in a couple of nights.
The baby bow tie quilt has been languishing with very little of the quilting done — and I think it was because of the hoop issue. So tonight I tried without the hoop and was amazed at how much faster it was to quilt and easier! I’m sold on the no-hoop method!
