    Just don't look too close at the quilting, lol.
    I used invisible nylon thread, and it did those stupid loops on the underside in some places. I'm going to wash it, and see how it looks after, I might go over the places that really bother me, but we'll see.

    oops wrong photo, sorry!

    It seems my camera is retarded. I took two pictures of the same thing, from two different angles, scanned through to see which one I wanted to upload, and then when I put the SD card in my computer, the files had vanished, lol!

    Quilt is gorgeous, but the baby bump was pretty darn cute too.

    loops. sorry. if you are going to hang it perhaps you could put some fray check of sorts on those areas. but not if it's to be used. there is one out that is softer but still you probably perfer to do those areas over. lovely quilt though!

    It's going to be hung, so I think the loops that are on the back are just going to stay there, and the ones on the front I'll just pull out in the back. It's invisible thread, so it's not THAT obvious, just on the border in a couple of places. It's not like the quilt is full of them either, just a few here and there. I just hate it when that happens and then you find them at the very end *sigh* I need a quilting frame.

    It's beautiful - you have inspired me to try to make the bargello that I bought fabric for a year ago!

    Sort of, this was my first bargello and I had a picture to work from, but I didn't follow any instructions or anything.
