I was almost done doing the pebble quilting with about 3 inches left around each end when I ran out of threat. So, I bought a cone of the metalic thread from Superior Thread to finish the job since I had already gone through 4 500 yard spools. Well, even with the spool on a thread stand, I just could not get the tension right and was getting extremely frustrated, so I put the quilt aside for a little while. I went back to it about a month and a half later and still had the same issues no mater what I did (changed top tension, needles, bobbin tension, speed, etc.). So aside it went again for another month.
Today, I found another spool of metalic thread instead of the cone and decided to give it another go. Well, that was it and I was able to finish quilting the fab quilt tonight. I'm in love with it. I'm so happy with how it came out. I still need to add a binding and trim the threads, but I'm so happy that this step is over.
Here are a few more pics of the quilting.
Great job! I like the fabric you used, too. I hate when I can't get the tension correct.ReplyDelete

Turned out fantastic! Good job on the pebbling. I know it feels great to get the quilting finished.ReplyDelete
Love the quilt and quilting...I recently did a quilt like you quilted it...was so fun!ReplyDelete
Great quilting! And doesn't the metalic thread add an extra dimension to it!ReplyDelete
Oh that looks great! I love the D9P with the sashing and the pebbling looks great!!! Way to go!ReplyDelete
I know you've been working on this forever! I'm glad you finished it. It looks extremely impressive. I certainly don't have the patience to do that.ReplyDelete
That's an awesome quilt. I'm glad your tension issue worked out :)ReplyDelete
Your quilt is beautiful and I love the pebbling you did and plan on using it on a quilt soon. What type and loft of batting do you use? I always use low loft but want my quilting to show more.ReplyDelete
Yay! Congrats -- I totally get the frustration with the actual quilting process. So glad you were able to figure it out though and finish things up!ReplyDelete
