And my secret weapon - I own a semi-industrial blind hemmer (the machine that is used for hemming trousers & skirts so that the stitches don't show from the front) I used it to sew the two long sides of the hanging sleeve in a fraction of the time it would have taken to do by hand 8) There aren't any photos of it because I used invisible thread - and it is :wink:

I wish I hadn't been so rushed at the end, as I was really enjoying the quilting part of the process (except side 4 of the medalion - the design was getting boring by then :P )(& putting the binding down by hand - I really must indulge in more hand sewing) I reckon I have a hand sewn wholecloth quilt in me to do.

Just don't let me send in a quilt show/competition entry before the darned thing is finished (or all but) again!

Rosemary, your quilt is absolutely beautiful and the quilting truly sings! In fact, you should be pretty proud of the corners of the binding too! It's amazingly beautiful and I hope it wins because it is a jewel! :D
P.S. Are you ready for Chinese Whispers now? :D

Oh, Rosemary, this turned out so beautiful!! I love all of your quilting! And the mine-blocks scattered in the wide white border are so fun!! And your miters are perfect!! There are so many wonderful details that I just can't include them all in my accolades!

The green triangles have 1" cross hatching over them. I marked this using masking tape, going first one direction around the edge and then the other.

Attachment {!-- ia1 -->CIMG7782.JPG{!-- ia1 --> not found

The inner green border mirrors the outer green triangles border, but this time I used strips of 1" wide sand paper to give me the placement. The white echo quilting on the large triangles I was able to use the guide edge that came with my walking foot, but unfortunately it only clips onto the right hand side of the foot, so for doing the smaller green border I again used a strip of sand paper as a guide. I fond this much easier to use than the masking tape in this application (lots of short starts & stops){!-- ia0 -->CIMG7787.JPG{!-- ia0 -->I love the puffy look that this wadding has given the quilt, and when I run out of blankets (or do another special quilt) I will definitely be using wool again. Unless it needs to be a wall hanging or something.

Terrie, since this baby is going into a show I want her looking her absolute best if possible. If it was just for the bed I wouldn't have been so bothered about getting the basting stitch marks out, because I know that they will go eventually with use.

The binding is all on and I have 4 beautiful looking mitred corners - even if I do say so myself. :D 8)
Hanging tube & label to go, no sweat! (until Izzy said 'are we taking it there today?' :shock: )

Rosemary, I love hearing about your process, patience and perfection. I learn so much reading about your details. I never would have thought about removing the old holes. I'm learning a lot from you, girl. Why not set up with TQS and get some lessons/classrooms going?

I look forward to seeing the finished treasure.
