Almost done!

by Nicole

My Riley Blake challenge quilt is almost done.

I finished the quilting – not in time for the guild reveal this past Sunday, but done nonetheless!

Here are a couple of peeks of the quilt in progress.

I went with straight lines – one of favorite quilting designs! It required a lot of marking, but was worth the added effort for the neatness of the lines. 


Since I’ll be homebound tomorrow because of snow, perhaps I will finish tidying up the quilt for photos. It needs a bit of thread burying and brushing off the lint from the batting.

Stay tuned!

Those straight lines are very effective, what do you mark them out with?

It is phenomenal. I hope you realize what an inspiration you are. When I see this phenomenal quilting, I think, I might be able to do that. I am challenged when it comes to FMQ – I have trouble turning images in my brain – I know that my sound strange for someone who was a math major. The last QUILTING class I took, I loved it when we used the walking foot – even when we did smooth curves with it. I feel much more confident with it, too. I've had chemo and I have fibromyalgia – both effect memory recall, too which I at least tell myself makes FMQ more difficult for me. Sometimes, it helps to know your strengths and weaknesses. Some of the quilters lead us to believe they don't mark anything. I have a couple of large lap quilts, I'd like to try to quilt and I've been hesitating because I wanted to mark them – whether I brave it and do FMQ or walking foot. Thanks for all your posts and inspirations.

What do you use to brush lint? Anything fancy or just the average clothes device? Love your quilting as always!!!
