Bluff Quilt in Brown was loaded on the frame and ready to quilt.
I chose thread and began quilting:
I wasn't sure how much thread it would take, nor was I versed in the fine art of estimating how far the end of a thread cone will go. I figured that I would find out soon enough!! (fingers crossed)
In essence, I played a game of "Thread Chicken." This is the LAST corner of the quilt:
That was AFTER missing one section of side basting AND opting to pin the final roll of the quilt top!!
Care to venture a guess as to how much thread remained???
Not much! Have a look for yourself:
Only the length of the thread path!!! Yep!! From the needle to the cone holder. YIKES!!! That was TOO close for comfort!!
Note: The Baptist Fan template board was used on this quilt and ate less than ONE prewound bobbin for the whole thing.
Until next time...
Quilt tag! You're it!!
