Beverly's Hunter's Star
Beverly's purple and yellow Hunter's Star was a king size! I was not looking forward to clearing the kitchen floor to pin it, so my friend Gina offered to thread baste it on her longarm. Am I drooling yet? It took a fraction of the time. I only wish I could have quilted it on the frame as well:)
I had to alternate between purple and yellow thread, which makes quilting with a domestic machine a little more challenging, especially with a quilt this size. The trick is to keep everything smooth, so it doesn't bunch up when you get close to the stitching of the color that you have already used.
