First I had to graft new batting in. I did this by laying the old batting over the new and cutting a wavy line through the two layers and removing the old batting:
Stitching the cut edges together;
I cut a wavy line in the hope that there wouldn’t be any permanent bump in the finished quilt.
Some more trimming:
A trip to the ironing board:
Some tacking – did I mention how I HATE to hand tack. This is one quilting job I would pay to have done. They don't call me the Queen of spray basting for nothing!
I have the quilt on the frame, all the gear together:
Can I still hand quilt?
Yes, I can!
Now that I am finally at this point and have lots of Rugby viewing to do I think I am going to enjoy this.
TTFN oh and GO THE ALL BLACKS!
