Ugh, my local quilt shop only had one small spool of the light gray aurifil thread and no big spools. I thought it was going to be enough, but it for sure is NOT going to be enough. Since nobody else local has any, I am going to have to order more online. :( Ordering now, and then finishing up what quilting I can do, bummer....

Tiles will be a quilt-along at Bear Creek Quilting Co. blog in June! I will be making another version of the quilt for the quilt-along as well :) If you want to get a head start on collecting your fabrics, this is a 90x90 quilt and takes an entire 40 piece Moda FQB for the front, or 10 yards. Yes, the entire 10 yards. If you do not use Moda precut FQ's, please plan for an additional 4 FQ's (Moda's FQ's are generous and we used every inch of them!) I used ''Ambleside'' and it was just so lovely to work with all the delicate colors and prints. Love love love!
So enough chatting, onto more pics! Enjoy!
As you can see, I did a basic diagonal ''straight'' line quilting on every other block. I wanted to keep the quilting a bit loose on this one because it is a big heavy quilt - there is a LOT of fabric in this quilt!
Love me some post-wash crinkles! <3
OK, I decided to share a couple pics..... but because my lovely customer follows my blog (and I want the final outcome to be a surprise when she recieves it), I am just going to show a couple hints of the quilting. The quilting is taking quite a bit of time, but it's looking good so far!
