I have finally finished the 1 1/2" grid of my jubilee quilt. Yay!!! So, if I were to be finished at this point, I would say that there are a ton of stitches. But the fact that the grid quilting is only about half way done is a little mind boggling.
The rows were a little hard to keep straight so I'm really glad I've finished this step.
Now it's on to quilting 1/2" lines. What a huge difference! These rows can be marked in my lap as I get to them. It's a big time savings plus I'm done with the pins. I've noticed that this part of the quilting is going much faster.
I'm quilting up to the little red leaves in the border. My plan will be to finish these lines then move on to the border.
You can see in the top left corner where there are still some 1 1/2" areas, what a big difference the 1/2" quilting makes to the design. I guess I'm close to being almost a quarter of the way done. Trying to do a little every day and trying not to think about how much is left. I'm really glad the quilt show is more than five months from now. Hopefully my hands will hold out!!
