This 58-1/2" X 69-1/2" quilt was made for the sole purpose of using up 2-1/2" squares. Lots of bright, scrappy goodness in this one! Background fabric is Kona White.
It's double-batted with Quilter's Dream request poly on the bottom and QD's wool on top. Thread is a medium-gray, Presencia 50-weight.
Quilting this on my Pfaff Grand Quilter was a less than enjoyable experience. The top thread broke frequently, though I kept changing the needle size... from 80 to 90 to 100. The size 100 worked better, but not ideally.
I mostly persevered through quilting, cutting off broken thread pieces, rethreading the machine, and starting again... until the next thread break. 'Bout a hundred times. Yep... less than fun. After speaking to a Pfaff representative, I anticipate the machine is heading to the Pfaff repair doc, about 45 minutes away, on Friday. Quilts gotta be quilted!
These outdoor photos were taken at the Big Cypress Rec Center where Big Cypress Quilters meet every Tuesday afternoon.
I have lots of good friends there. Thanks Frances and Joanne for being my quilt holders on a gorgeous Florida day! Linda
