Oops, let’s do that again…

Today, I was working on quilting the Bloom, Bloom, Pow quilt, a quilt-a-long at Freshly Pieced that occurred earlier in the year. I quilted it just as Lee suggested for her sample.

It turned out great. I decided not to go into the border and quilt that in a different manner. Well, this is what happens when you intensely dislike border quilting that you just completed.

And, this is the reward you get after completing that task, a task of which took 3 times longer to do than the actual quilting itself.

I will say that the coldness of that bowl really helped the pain in my fingers after removing all that thread. πŸ™‚

Now I have decided that I will continue the main quilting into the border and see how that goes. I hope to give my seam ripper a well-deserved break.

Until next time…..
