Easy Steet

It's done.  I just finished putting the binding on.  I used a pantofgraph on this one.  It Fly Away, not sure who the designer is.  I can check in the morning.  Doing a search didn't bring it up.  But I did get this pantograph with my long arm.  I was never able to do it as there are some long winding graceful curves and I just struggle with those on a pantograph.  But hey, how will I ever get better if I don't try.  Easy Street is for me and the pattern is so busy that even if I mess up on the quilting, it will hardly be noticeable !  Yep that's what I told myself and I just went for it.  I started out pretty shaky, but by the time I was half way through I was feeling a lot better.  It wasn't as good as I wanted it to be but it didn't make me run out of the room screaming cuz it was so bad either :)  Well here you go....It's a big one 102" sq.  So Fine on top, Bottom Line in the bobbin and Hobb's poly down batting.  This was the first time I've used the Hobb's poly down.  We'll see how it looks after it washes up.

  11. Yeah for finishing Easy Street.... It's my leader/ender. I have a heck of a time with pantos to although if I would quilt more with pantos or anything I would be much better. Sigh. Great finish!

  17. Pretty panto! I like that it is full of curves to contrast with all those straight lines in the piecing. Great job! Congrats on your finished Easy Street.
