Quilted in the Pink!
Off with the standard foot and on with the Open Toe Accufeed - it would be nice to just press a button but you have to remove the shank and screw on the Accufeed, less than a minute and the results are well worth it. I chose a wavy line for the quilting to contrast with all the rectangles. I spray basted the quilt but I don't think I need to - next time I'll try pinning and be more environmentally friendly. The Accufeed keeps the layers so precisely together I should be OK.
Crisis has arisen as this quilt is made of left overs I have nothing to bind it with. After a frantic search late last night to avoid a mad dash to Scarborough Sewing Centre today, Paul produced the bag of new fabrics I bought for the upcoming September workshop. The background I chose for that is lemon so that ties in well with the backing so fabric shopping trip avoided - what a pity!
