I promised I'd show you if I managed to get my Frosted Hearts Table Topper quilted, and here it is! I finished up the quilting this afternoon. I finished all the gold coloured quilting last night, but couldn't decide on the quilting for the hearts. Instead I decided to put the rest of the binding in place, and sleep on it.
While I was at the quilt store today I was able to sew down a little of the binding, but not too much. And you'll all be pleased to know I was able to stick to my fabric diet in the presence of all the lovely fabric. It's been reasonably easy over the holidays as I wasn't at the store too often, but being there each week will be a different story.
When I got home I decided that rather than keep trying with the decorative stitches that just weren't working, I'd just do some loopy quilting on the hearts with the crimson red silk thread I bought. It looks just fine, and the top looks much more finished now. I'll stitch down the rest of the binding tonight while watching a movie. I purchased the DVD of The Devil Wears Prada the other day, and though I've already seen it at the cinema, I know I'll enjoy watching it.
Susan asked if I could show a closer picture of the quilting, so I'll do my best. I find it hard to get a good picture, especially when the quilting thread is very close to the colour of the fabric.
To me it's still hard to see the quilting, but maybe it's just my laptop?
Well, that's it from me today. I'll check in again soon!
