    Some of you may remember my post last week when I was not having a good day quilting. I went back the next day and finished my quilt. The half circles were cut from a pieced half jelly roll of batiks, I had bought in Florida last year. I appliqued this and stitched the echoes of the semi circles on white squares with a zig zag stitich and variagated thread, using QAYG method. I then mad a 2.5 in border in a matching turqoise bati, a 5 in border in white. Backed and binded with another batik and stitchd a diamond in the intersection of each of the white squares and also in the turqoise stepping stone in the border. It is a large KS quilt and I did this on my dsm.

    Even though it gave you so much trouble, it turned out lovely.

    Be kind to yourself, by being kind to others. When you help others you help yourself.

    Thanks everyone, Tessagin never measured it but its a 20 year old janome prob 7 inch? I have quilted several large quilts on it, it just takes a bit of effort and patience. I usually fmq but I've only managed stippling/meandering. I dont have the space for a longgarm, although I would love one, I'm hoping to get a machine with a larger throat later this year.
