Machine quilting this morning.

Three of the blocks have now had the 'filling' on the outer edges quilted and are complete....and one side of the border is completed.  I am slowly sewing round the actual design on the border fabric.
This is all taking heaps of time, frequent stops...and a huge amount of silk.
I will never show the back of this quilt, as it is a learning curve with many differnt threads. 
The silk is working best at present so I am going to go with that...but as I run out of colours - the back coloured thread is changing.


The right hand border is finished and I have three more to go.  I will alternate between hand sewing and machine quilting for a bit..Getting too side-tracked.
The strange thing is that when I look at these photos I can see parts I have missed!!

Back to my sewing now.

You are good! The way you matched the miter borders is good, very good .... I know how hard that must have been! The air would have been a tad blue if I ever tried to do that.
