The machine quilting is taking a bit longer than I expected but I'm really pleased with the results. I free-motioned straight stitch around all the letters and did some big meandering around the white area of this quilt. Whew, that hour flew by quickly.
I still haven't decided what to quilt in the "plaid" part. I'm thinking of machine stitch in the ditch on either side of the blue plaid strips. Still thinking...
I like how it looks from the back. The words can be seen easily.
It's only about 1/3 done. So I estimate another two hours of machine quilting... which pushes the finish off until later this week.
