Lots of stopping and starting and thread tucking

This is coming along slow but sure. I forget every time I do the machine quilting how much stopping and starting and pulling tail ends into the quilt I do. I prefer the tucked thread ends so they don't ball up when washed and used.
I still have about 2/3's of the top to quilt. Really going slow for me. But I do like the effect of the texture it is giving to the blocks.
We have had over 4.3 inches of rain in 8 days. Jeff did mow the yard to even it out and mulch up left over leaves that blew in from the neighbors. It is to rain more the rest of the week so who knows when we will get back out to do more. Chris

I am so sick of the rain! It was nice to see a bit of sun today, but I can feel the rain coming in!
Your quilt looks wonderful!

I love this! So colorful. It reminds of the Dresden Plate pattern currently working with in black and white. Found your blog through Wanda Hanson's. I think we have something in common, which you may figure out from my name. :)

Happy stitching!
