I was really pleased to receive a phonecall early this morning from a customer, thanking me for quilting her quilt and saying how wonderful the quilting design was. I thought I had taken more photos of the quilt but the only one I have tells a different story. The quilt was all asian fabrics and I used a Glide thread called Cleopatra that looks gold in colour. I quilted it with a Clamshell desgin using long boards on the back of my machine. Because I was standing at the back I am not constantly looking at the front of the quilt. So it happened that I stitched through one of my flower head pins, that I was using to baste the quilt. Changed the needle etc and complacency set in again and I stitched through a second one before I finished the quilt! But she loved it and that is all that matters.
