Quilting progress

I have been doing progress on the quilt I'm working on since I got to load it up on the frame last weekend. I never thought it would take this long to quilt it, but I have some trouble seeing the white thread on the white fabric... Since I don't have a fancy black light on my Innova longarm, I have to turn off the head lights and just use the regular lamp on the machine. It works pretty well to "dance in the dark", but hard for the eyes. But it works with taking a few breaks ;o)

The quilting is my 'version' of McTavishing. It's a pattern that I find very difficult to do, but I love the look of it. I guess I've learned a lot about how to make it smooth when I'm finished quilting this quilt. I have to admit it looks better as I go. 






I think I managed to add my personal touch on this, and look forward to get it finished and see it from a different angle than on the frame. I know it will look so much different than when you're standing with your nose just a couple of feet from it :o)
I just hope Helen will like it! 

Over here the Winter came back for a visit, and everything is covered with snow again. We haven't had snow for several months and it looked like Spring for a while. Perfect sewing weather if you ask me :o)

Happy quilting,
Laila

Your quilting looks beautiful! Every once in awhile I wish I had a black light bulb too! There always seems to be a way to make it work.

This is looking lovely. It takes a while to get the rhythm of this design, but once you've got it, it seems to drive itself. And the result is always stunning. I'm looking forward to seeing a full picture of the completed quilt!
