Whoooo Hoooo! I have my 3rd finish of 2015! I was able to finish this at the February quilt retreat! Friday was very productive with the quilting and binding of my Mini Ziggurat!
This project really challenged me. I completed this entire project on my sewing machine. I first blogged about the Mini Ziggurat project when I was sharing my struggle with project monogamy.
I am still learning to quilt on my domestic machine. I have quilted a couple of mug rugs – this was just a larger version. The Mini Ziggurat was very geometric and suited to straight lines. I figured I could handle the straight lines. (My FMQ still is lacking. I really don’t expect it to get better with the Bernina Stitch Regulator still in the box.)
I really enjoyed the process! There was only a few places that I had to rip out the quilting.
The quilting design shows up great on the dark fabric of the pieced back. Ignore the extra white thread patches. I used the automatic thread cutter and when I didn’t grab the tails, there seemed to be bunching. I wasn’t too worried by it, remember it is the back!
Thanks Julie for being such a great quilt model!
