Still quilting

I've just about got the left side of the quilting done, then it's on to the right.  I was going to take a picture, but changed my mind...maybe I'll post one later.  In the meantime, I've learned about Aurifil thread and I have to get my hands on some as it sounds absolutely wonderful.

Let the quilting begin

So today, I finally basted the quilt and started quilting.  I'm hand quilting the top and since I haven't done it in what seems like forever it took a little time to get my rhythm back.  Here's what I've done so far.  Just outline quilting the letter and inside and around the applique background.  Then it's off to the body of the quilt which should go fairly quickly because it's all straight lines.

Here's a picture.

My Ott Light is bleaching out the top of the photo and the angles a little weird, but you can see the progress thus far.  We're getting a bunch of snow right now, so I'm kind of hoping that tomorrow will be too much to get out so I can stay home and quilt.
