Finally.....

 I've been working on the quilting on this Miss Tess Quilt for a couple of weeks, on Sundays mostly. I've been wanting to work on it after work, but once I make supper and sit down, I don't get much done. ( Work sort of takes the oooomph out of me right now) My best time to quilt on the machine is in the morning, I rarely quilt in the evening.  So I decided to work on it as soon as I got home so maybe, just maybe I could get it finished.
I used the Mini Chaos panto, which interlocks in an interesting way, but you don't get as far with every pass because you are always dipping back into the last row. It's an easy panto to do, though and I like the all over effect. I always take pictures of the front and back when I get it off the machine. I will take good pictures of the quilt itself after I get the binding on, but I like to have pictures of both as a record. for me and I might forget if I don't do it then.
Love this floral backing fabric. So pretty.
 I am going to use the black and white uneven check that I used in the centers of the blocks for the binding. I have it, now to get it cut and prepped. Maybe tonight....

When is your best sewing/quilting time?

It looks even more lovely now it's quilted. I'm better earlier in the day too. I find that the light just isn't good enough in the evenings so save that for computer time.
