    Monster Truck

Size:  271.5 KBSo first thank you everyone that was so patient and helpful with this little project. I learned about batting loft, learned how to get the monsters to pop out with the trapunto method. It was the most ambitious free motion project to date, love my new to me Juki.

    What I neglected to do is quilt a few areas as densely as the rest of the quilt. Now that it's been washed do I quilt those areas?

    Next question, I dutifully hand stitched the label on and the message was washed away. Do I take the label off pre shrink the thread re do in permanent ink and what pen please. Or just wing it and write a new message? I know not to use a sharpie as it might bleed threw.

    Thanks again for all the encouragement.

    I always did either hand emb or machine emb for my label, if you don't have a machine, you've come this far, hand emb the label.
    your quilt is magnificent!!! I wish I was the kid receiving that quilt. great job!!
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Very colorful and cute quilt. I like to hand embroider labels. Takes time but so well worth it.
