Congruence - Quilting Progress

Congruence {Quilting Progress}

It took me a few days to get to the point where I could sustain spending much time quilting last week. One of the lingering symptoms of COVID for me has been vertigo. And the effect of spinning Congruence in a circle through the throat of my machine took a bit of getting used to (along with a continued decrease in the severity of vertigo). But I kept being able to spend a little bit more time each day at my machine, and I think I made pretty good progress.

At this point I’m well over halfway done with the base quilting, and I’m 100% settled on finishing out the remainder of the quilting following my Plan C sketch.

I am happy with just using a single thread color, even across the Kona Oyster. I’m using 50wt Aurifil 4093 (Jade) that color matches beautifully with the Kona Enchanted, and I just wound a few more bobbins, so I’m set to make more progress this week.

And here’s a peak of the quilting on the back of the quilt (Kona Carnation). So far, so good (no tucks). This quilt seems to be trying its hardest to teach me a bit of patience, but without any other unforeseen setbacks, I think that I will get this finished up sometime soon!

  1. Looking more than good Yvonne, looks great!

  2. Your quilting is looking great! I’m sorry to hear about the vertigo, but glad it seems to be decreasing. Take care!

  3. I’m so glad you are getting better, even if it is slowly.
    When you gave up your longarm, I had just gotten mine, and I was shocked. It has been interesting to watch you grow into quilting on your domestic machine. I find it so compelling that you have elevated your quilting style by embracing what your machine can do. I’m at the point where I’m considering moving away from my longarm, and you have given me a lot of inspiration to continue embracing my own style, and letting go of the idea that I need to have a longarm to be taken seriously.

  4. It’s such a pleasing surprise to see Carnation on the back. The thread is looking great too. Not good to have vertigo and quilting in circles, egad! Glad it’s getting less and less.

    I love seeing the quilting on the back of a quilt where you can see all those wonderful lines! Sorry to hear about the vertigo – hope things return to normal soon.

  6. Love the way this is looking and glad that you are feeling well enough to get to it. You know, slow and steady wins the race, but sometimes we do just want to push ahead don’t we. Good luck with finishing it. I really like the green thread in the white.

    I like your use of the one thread color too!

    Hopefully the vertigo is completely gone now. The quilting is looking really good. I’m amazed you could quilt at all with vertigo. It usually makes me too sick at my stomach to even sit.

  9. That is coming along so beautifully!! I am glad the vertigo is going away – that could really mess with your circles…. Hope its all gone now( I am behind on things)

I really appreciate the time and thought you take to comment, and I look forward to conversing with you. :)
