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!
