Finished...phew!!!

He's finished...phew!
What a lot of quilting...I know there's no way I could have done all this quilting on my other domestic machines....
While it's not show quality quilting, I'm very happy with the finished quilt....
It's been a fun learning curve....SS lived up to her reputation, she was amazing to work with....the stitch regulator made such a difference and was worth every cent for me...
I played around a bit and did swirls in the Jacobs Ladder border...and simple scallop's in the inner cream border...
You might like to check out Carla Barrett's tut on how she does the swirls...Big thank you to Leeanne of Quiltmekiwi blog...who sent me the link, I found it to be a great help....Ok, I still need to practice lots more.
 
Hope your having a nice day...I'm off to piece some more on the zig-zag quilt....♥

Thanks to you and Leeanne for the link to Carla's tutorial. Very helpful.
Your quilt looks great, Julia! Doesn't it feel good to have done it yourself? I agree with you--I don't know how quilters do large quilts on a domestic machine. I love my 16" of harp space!

Good for you to have accomplished a whole quilt - and so pretty! - on your new machine. I hope you get the time you want, for Christmas, to keep up with all the projects in your head!
