Progress on Orphan Quilt No 1

Well, today has been an extremely busy day!

Here I am onto the second half of the vertical line quilting - this quilt is such a monster that I can only to half of it at a time, or it just won't fit!

Almost to the end - I have Jan set for the largest stitch she can do, to try and make my life a bit easier!!

And here she is, all the vertical quilting is done, and i have trimmed her and am starting to do a little bit of horizontal quilting around just some of the blocks - I can't face manhandling it through the machine again!

Surprisingly, I have only found a couple of pleats - and they have been on the front, not the backing!  So she went together fairly well!

Tomorrow is the binding and then the full showing!

Wish me luck....

You are wonder woman! I could never tackle a big quilt like that on my home machine. I love the scrappy-ness of your quilt!
