I just put the last hand quilted stitch in my Canada Quilt!
The lighting at 10:30 pm is not doing the colours justice but it sure shows off the quilting texture. I’m very happy with how this turned out, despite wondering halfway through, and again at 3/4 of the way and again and again, why I chose to quilt it so densely. In the end it was worth it.
Tomorrow I will trim it and add the binding, which I uncharacteristically prepared before I started the quilting. Then I will hold my breath and hope it doesn’t wave at me when it hangs on the wall! It was flat before I started the quilting and I did aim for more or less even quilting density, so I am hopeful. If it does wave, perhaps I can try blocking the quilt. I’ve read online recently that that is very helpful to make hanging quilts hang properly. Do any of you have any advice about this?
