Here’s the finished top to my Paintbox Quilt from the quilt-a-long at Oh, Fransson! (turned 90 degrees so it wouldn’t drag on the floor). I wasn’t going to post any pictures of this quilt until I was done, but I have a bad feeling I’m going to mess up the quilting so I might as well show it off in its pristine state. I’ve never made a quilt this big and the thought of basting it and then maneuvering it through my sewing machine to quilt it is quite intimidating. Though a lot of the other quilt-a-long participants are using a stippling quilting pattern, I think I’m going to go with wonky, narrow lines because the few times I’ve done stippling have not been fun, and I know I’d have trouble keeping a consistent look if I stopped and started a lot.
The quilt top looked so pretty hanging up in my dining room, I’m tempted to call it curtain and be done with it.
