Where have I been? Why haven't I been blogging for a bit? Well, I will tell you - unless you are a member of my Facebook Page - then you already know.
I have been marking this quilt to get it ready for hand-quilting.
Remember this quilt? I finished the top in March of 2011 and put it into my quilting closet until now!
Take a look at all that marking! I marked this with the Clover wash-away blue pen at 7/8" cross-hatch. Wowzers! This quilt is about 98" x 120" and this marking took me FOREVER! I think it took around 40-50 hours - or season one of Game of Thrones and seasons one and two of Ghost Whisperer. Crazy huh? All the blue lines I had to mark and we will hand quilt along those lines and in the ditch around each of the red units. The quilting will take a while but it will be worth it I think!
Here it is loaded onto the hand quilting frame with a few stitches in. Looks great doesn't it?
I am so happy to have this on the frame! Now I can move onto other things - yey!!
