Monday, Monday - last day to link to Scraptastic Tuesday and Blogathon Canada is on!

Quilting detail

Well, I finally finished the quilting part of my large version of my new Consider pattern. I am slowly learning to have a more realistic expectations of how long it takes to quilt these densely quilted quilts. The next three quilts destined for the long arm will be more quilting in a more ordinary manner and I think they will feel very fast.

The light was dull yesterday and I had no handy quilt holders so tossing the quilt on my bed not flat lets you see the quilting some.

Quilting detail

As I expected, I am smitten with this quilt now. Next is mending in the thread ends, trimming it and binding. I am pretty sure I will bind it with the same Kona Snow as the background so that the binding does not become a design element.

Quilting is done

There she is on my king size bed. I'm keen to get this one all done now.

I have a couple of things to remind you of. First, today is the last day to link up your post, photo from Flickr or photo from Instagram about your scraps or a scrappy project in progress or finished - go here. I'll be drawing for the winners in the morning. Please join Nicky and I, I have been having the best time visiting all the links, and tomorrow I will share some of the inspiration I found.

Blogthon Canada is on! You can meet a number of lovely Canadian bloggers. And there is fantastic inspiration and prizes to be won at each host blog, and at the Sew Sisters Quilt Shop Blog, every day. The prizes are available to anyone in the world, so you can all enter.  Here is the schedule and links:

LOVE the movement of the quilting! I am too chicken to try dense quilting, but maybe I'll try it out on a mini!
