A pinwheel finish

Quilt #14 on the Avante is quilted! This one is probably the biggest quilt that I have ever quilted. It's for Jen and it's a pinwheel sampler quilt. The fabrics are gorgeous!

I quilted this was Daisy Duo pantograph and white Glide in the top and silver Bottom Line in the bobbin. I added a bit of batting to the first thread guide, but that didn't help with my thread issues and I have quite a few spots where I had to rip out the stitching due to nesting on the bottom. But the extra thread in the top part of the stitch didn't happen which is a good thing.

Here is a picture of the quilting. No flash so that the quilting shows up better.

I'm not sure that I will be able to get a picture of the full quilt. I will see how it goes when I bury the threads. :)

Is that from the ps I quilt quiltalong a few years ago? Mine is still sitting unquilted, too. This really makes me want to get it done.

Quilt looks great and I love the panto you chose. At least with the Avante you'll have fewer threads to bury now since you can do more in a single pass on the frame.

Is your check spring OK? I know you have a new machine...but just maybe. Or maybe wrap your thread twice around the tensioner.

Hey, way to go. :D I love pinwheels. Which is good, since I'm getting fabric prepped for doing a bunch of them up!
