Half Way There!

Haven't posted anything quilty for a while, cuz progress has been slow.  But now I have 25 rose buds quilted, and 17 to go.  Then I can start on the background stippling.  The roses in the center of the quilt were most difficult due to the weight and bulk.  Even with the 11" clearance, it was a challenge.  Someone, puh-lease stop me if I ever say I want to FMQ another queen sized project! 

The sewing cabinet under the window used to reside in my bedroom, and that was all the space I had - coupled of course, with the kitchen table.  Its great to have a little elbow room.  :)

Looks great!
I think quilting a big quilt is like having a baby, you will soon forget all the pain and do it again!
