Almost Done

I went back to work on the 30th, so the whole schedule has changed, but I have been quilting, just in shorter bursts.
I've been doing a lot of this.

...on this.

I only have a few more sections of the light green border to quilt and I'll be done. Then I have to figure out what I'm going to do with the borders, but I don't think that will be as closely quilted. I don't know what I was thinking when I started this part, but each section is about 12 by 12 for the largest and it takes me about 30 minutes to quilt it. 

The good news is I finally figured out the skipped stitches problem...tension and I'm getting lots of quilting practice!

Huzzah for no skipped stitches. I have been trying to stuff a quilt through a regular sewing machine, too. Your quilting looks great.

Tension can be a tricky thing, but once you learn your machine and what threads you use with the right needle then you open another world of quilting. Great quilting!

Love your quilting! I always ask myself the same question when doing dense background fills. Looking forward to seeing the finished quilt!
