|'Miss Betty I' and 'Miss Betty II' on the frame at the same time!|
A few new tools for Christmas definitely were a big help:
|Opening the box - those are Lipstick RED T-handles, Miss Betty's favorite color!|
|T-handle and ball-end Hex tools|
After a LOT of patience during the 'trial & error' learning phase of how to get her fixed, we were back in the quilting saddle! Just look at these gorgeous quilting stitches:
|McTavishing the left navy border|
|Along w/right navy border|
|Central quilting 'perpendicular' to the stripes in the top w/Dave Hudson's Random Stars panto - |
one of our very favs!
The panto quilting is ALL finished, time to do the final ditch & McTavish quilting, THEN go back and quilt continuous swirls in the white borders and 'something' in the gold borders...still haven't settled on a final quilting design...time for some quilt browsing...
