I'm making such great progress on the quilting--finished the last of the fancy blocks last night before graduation.
Here's a single block:
and here's a portion of the quilt where you can see some of the colored chains:
I stitched the outline of a butterfly in each block and filled in around it with a medium sized meander stich to set it off.
I don't know about the rest of you but often, when I'm working on a large quilt like this, I have to stop when I've finished quilting the center and re-pin the borders. I don't mind doing this but if there's a trick to prevent the fabrics from shifting so much, I'd be happy to hear it. I re-pinned the borders today and will start quilting them later when I come home from a graduation party this afternoon. I'm still trying to get the entire thing done this weekend--wish me luck.
