Bobby’s quilt finished

This one was finished in May.  Bobby likes minimal quilting and always asks for it.  I thought a dark blue thread too dark on the white and white thread too bright on the blue squares so I chose a very pale, almost white, blue grey thread.  It was just right for going over both colors.

The corners of the snowball embroidery blocks are loose and were not to be stitched down.  I stitched a line just barely under the loose corners in order to have continuous lines of stitching.

She wanted meandering on the snowball blocks but without any stitching on top of the design.  I used a clear monofiliment thread for the meandering.

I’ve not gotten a lot of quilts finished this year due to so much time spent away from home and the problem with my arm.  I hope things get better soon.
