Work In Progress Wednesday -
well it has been slow. It is simply too hot and far too humid in Tokyo to quilt.
I think the wadding has gained weight because of the damp and the quilt itself is more awkward than before to handle.
Nevertheless, progress on
stands like this:
Everyone of the 38 'snakes' have been quilted in the ditch.
Three of the 'spinach tagliatelle' now have a snail pattern. Am I cooking Torchietti?
As you can see, the 'cooking' does not always go well, some of the swirls are too tight or too stretched out. The walking foot has trouble going backwards.
I will try to find a better and flatter place to let the quilt rest on. Hopefully that will easy the weight. Bundling everything up in my lap and packing it up behind the machine is making it hard to control...
This will just have to be slooow progress!
