Finally quilted



      This quilt is from a Missouri Star quilt pattern that uses layer cakes. Over a year ago, I bought this bookish fabric from Connecting Threads on a pre-Thanksgiving sale. I made the quilt and started quilting it on my 301. It was kind of tough due to the size, so after finishing the center row, I put it away. I loaded it on the Nolting which was a little tough because it was partly quilted. I persevered through some wrinkling and shredded Glide thread (why now?) and finished this but for the binding. It will be a comfort quilt for someone who loves books, not sure who. Love the Military gold thread color by Glide. Now onto a couple of more quilts hanging in the closet for over a year. Have to take the safety pins out first before they load on.
