jill here... Time often moves a little too fast. Usually, we're more than willing to take a break after piecing and send our quilt top off to the machine quilting expert! This turn around was quicker with QuiltCon looming. Nothing like a deadline to encourage finishing it ourselves!
Two rules for our novice machine quilting: forgiving backgrounds (ones with lots of pattern/ texture) and simple, low contrast in the quilting thread to hide any breaks of perfection. TV Dinners has a vertical presentation so vertical channels seemed the most obvious modern choice for quilting. And the lines were a built-in feature (without having to draw any extra, except in the border)!
The blocks of color on the back make it fun.
The binding was cut from the same length of fabric as the borders. It must have been a lucky day as it sewed like butter and caught the backside of the binding just perfectly.
'Till next Tuesday...
