Wee Play quilting.......

I finally got the Wee Play ''Endless Possibilities'' quilt basted and I've started quilting!
I am using a red variagated thread and an off-white backing.  I think for the binding I am going to take some scraps of 1 1/2'' strips I have from this line and use them to create a scrappy binding (I am going to have to attach them to another strip to make it 2 1/2'', but that will be hidden so I can use whatever I have a lot of, LOL)

This would be so much easier on a longarm than on the sewing machine - my arms ached after less than 1/4 of the quilt was done.  I am about 1/3 of the way done, have used 3 bobbins so far, but I have to put it away for now to sew some special orders from my eBay store :(

  5. What a fun top...I am amazed by those who quilt on their domestic sewing machines...it really is a stress on arms, shoulders and backs. You're doing a great job!
