The boring bit

I did manage to finish off all the quilting on the rainbow quilt during the week and spent sometime yesterday and last night making a start on  pulling all the threads through to the back, tying  off and burying them.   Very boring and mind numbing.  

Just to give myself a break from all that mindless work - and what takes forever with very little to show for all that time spent - I picked up the beanie and seem to be making good progress.    I have reached the stage of shaping the crown now.

I did set a goal of trying to have all the quilting finished by the end of the month - that has now been achieved- and seeing that there are nearly 2 weeks left of August my goal is now to finish off the quilt completely.

If you would like to see what others achieved last night for FNSI go over to Wendy's blog.

Back soon and in the meantime

Happy sewing all

Great progress. That is the annoying part of machine quilting. At least I can thread the ends in as I go with hand quilting .

Helen said...

Yep that sure is the boring bit, all those loose ends. Lovely start to your beanie.

Nothing more boring than tying off the threads from quilting ... unless you count burying the ends of yarn from knitting! Hahaha! Love the beanie!

A good job done though, thanks for sharing, the beanie looks great :)

Well done on getting the quilting done well before the end of August. I agree, tidying up those ends is a mindless task...good you had another project to turn to - the beanie is looking lovely; very pretty colours:-)
