Don't faint - progress on Henry Fish

Guess what? Guess what? Guess what?

I'm fiiiiiiiinally quilting Henry Fish: The Quilt.  Yes I am.  The backing is made.  The label is on.  The basting is done and Bernie is doing his thing.

Hopefully the label isn't too optimistic ...


It took the whole kitchen floor to baste ...


But Bernie is doing just fine. There is no way Teeny Weeny would have coped. She has gone on to Trade Me. I'd feel guilty, except I need the cash in to pay for Bernie!

The initial straight line quilting is done and ... No puckers.  Oh yeah. 

I think the border will be stippled. Then I'll decide what else to do. 


Yippee skippy. Maybe, just maybe, it will be done by next Friday. 

Linking up with Crazy Mom and Confessions of a Fabric Addict. Howdy!

Beautiful color scheme! Love the soft pastels. I just basted a big quilt (103X85) on my kitchen floor too. Knee pads are in order!

:-) Henry Fish is that handsome fellow in the fabric in the middle of the block. He was named by his designer, Peagreengirl, on Spoonflower - which is where he came from. I bought him for a quilt for me, and somehow he ended up on a quilt for Mother. I'm still not really sure how it happened!
