Quilting is Complete

This morning I finished with the free-motion quilting on this quilt.



I still have some threads to bury but I do believe that once that is done I can move on to squaring up and finishing. I love lots of quilting, as you can see in the photos.

I received my Christmas present from myself in yesterday's mail. I bought myself one of the Bendable Bright Lights (seen here). I got it all hooked up last evening and WOW! was that a bright discovery. I can't believe the light this little thing puts out. I had seen lots of other sewers sharing on their blogs about how much they liked these, so I just had to see what all the hullabaloo was about. I did notice one thing: at first I had it pointing directly where the needle is going up and down. Well the bright light was reflecting off the shiny metal of my presser foot and giving my eyes quite a strain. I started playing around with the light position and found that if I shine it on the fabric that is in front of the presser foot that it works better for me. I was beginning to wonder if I would need to wear sunglasses to be able to use this thing. I guess there is a learning curve to everything and all in all I am going to be very happy with this handy tool. So my review of this product is a big thumbs up.
