With everything that's been happening at work, it's been quite a while since I'd posted anything quilting related but I'm happy to say that I'm getting back into a groove and have a finish to share.
This is a quilt for my brother and his wife that I'm calling Seattle Showers. Since the fabric line is actually April Showers by Bonnie and Camille, I think I'm being clever since the recipients live in Seattle. (I know I'm not that clever, but please don't burst my bubble. 😊)
I really enjoyed quilting this even if I had some struggles with my machine. It didn't seem to like my backing fabric. I used Freefall by Tula Pink and it almost has a sateen quality to it. For some reason, it made adjusting my tension more difficult. I also encountered a needle detection error and after that, whenever I got halfway through a bobbin (I was using magna-glide bobbins), the bobbin thread would jam. I've thoroughly cleaned my machine and I'm hoping that the issue has resolved itself. Here's a close-up of the backing so you can see the quilting detail:
This is a belated Christmas gift that I will be giving my brother and his wife when their family is visiting from Seattle this week.
