Turkey Tracks:  September 19, 2018

“LongTime Gone” Top Done

I wrote this post last week as well.  I’ve since finished quilting this quilt and am sewing on binding now.  Pics to follow in a few days.

Yep!  It’s been done since early September.

But as I said, I’ve been really busy.

To remind:  this quilt is “Long Time Gone,” a Jen Kingwell pattern.  This quilt was a challenge issued by the Mt. Battie Modern Quilt Guild, and we started making blocks in January.

I did not use Kingwell’s border treatment, opting instead for the piano keys border.

The quilt is 100% Cotton+Steel fabrics, and I like it a lot.

I’ll likely get it on the long arm any day now, especially as I finally settled on a backing.  I had a backing that didn’t work with a light grey thread, which I need for the front I think.  That’s how that goes.  The discarded backing will find a new place.  And I’ll show the one I chose when I’ve finished the quilt.
