We will start with the BIG news first! The Wolf Project is ready to quilt!! After six months of work I'm finally at the stage where I can sandwich the quilt for quilting. I have a plan for the quilting but will have to buy LOTS of thread first. The most intimidating aspect of the quilting is the fact that you can't rip anything out without making gigantic holes in the quilt. You have one chance to get it right! No pressure there....... Wish me luck!
The quilting will be done on my trust Juki TL-98Q. She's 5 years old with lots of miles on her but I think we can do this together. What I'd really like to quilt it on is the new Juki QVP table machine.
I'll have to win the lottery first though.

Here is the start of my piece. You will start to see this one progress too. I have a few other work commitments to work on before I can devote more time to this piece but I love it so far.

Here are a few photos from the workshop and of David Taylor's work.
