This morning I almost finished the quilting on this quilt. I just have to pin it back on the frame to do the two side borders. I was about six inches from the end when I broke a needle. Changed the needle, took three stitches and broke another one. Had trouble inserting the next needle (lucky thing the machine came with several spare needles but I do need to get some more) but finally got it in. Checked the quilt and found a hidden pin that was the culprit. That took an extra half hour of fiddling around. Now I need to trim it a bit and do those last two borders. It will be a long one to bind though, because it is so huge and I am not the world's fastest hand sewer. Still, the end is in sight.
