The end is nigh and Deja vue

Tell me if you're getting sick of looking at his quilt, my fingers and eyes are getting slightly tired of it. I am, however, on the final straight. I'm not sure if I'll get a chance to carry on with it tomorrow as Joe will be home. If he's got something to keep him occupied for a couple of hours then I'll go do some more, I just want it done so I can move on to the next project.

I am pleased to announce that I have finished the quilting! Well as much as I'm prepared to do for now. Not the best photos I'm afraid, it was dark outside when I went back to the barn and the lighting isn't too good up there. A request for better lighting has been submitted to the management! ;-D

It doesn;t look much different from yesterday does it? LOL! Sorry.

I even got binding sewn onto one edge!

Yesterday I said that I thought it needed something else.
The lines cross over here where the coloured square corners meet. I think it needs something, I've ruled out appliqueing anything there as that's just too much work.

I ruled this out too, stitching on the inside of the masking tape then a cross! Nope!

This is a potential option. Keeping in with the grid like pattern I might, emphasis on 'might' stitch like the rest where I have laid the thread. Of course I may never pick it up again once finished!!

Miss Praying Mantis wasn't bovvered either way!

Next time you see the quilt, it will be on the bed, I promise.
Have a nice evening or if your day is just starting, have a good'un
