But for the binding - IT'S DONE!!!!
So here we go - The Patriotic Quilt is OFF the longarm!! My first attempt at a full sized quilt just needs the binding and I have no idea how I am going to wrestle it on. I haven't decided what color fabric I will use, either.
It must weight 100 pounds. I'll have to wash it at a commercial laundry mat and once that happens, I think the quilted parts will really pop.
Here are some pictures of the back before it is washed. It turned out a lot better than I thought it would but please don't look too closely. Some of those lines look like I was drunk when I was running the longarm. I practiced using the ruler and took extra time on a number of the more intricate blocks. I meandered in other places and used a panto on the border and corners.
I'm exhausted just looking at it. It was very satisfying to work on.
