I am VERY happy to report that I've finished quilting my friend's convergence quilt. It is far from perfect, but it will do just fine. I finally gave up with the water design I wanted to do. It's a freehand right to left design, and no matter how much I practiced on my Magnadoodle I couldn't do it. I finally decided it's because going left to right is so firmly entrenched in my brain that no matter how hard I try I reverse direction without thinking. I know the same pattern can be done left to right, but since my book shows it being done in the opposite direction I'll need to take a reverse photocopy in order to picture it.

I am happy with how it turned out, and I know my friend will be also. I've now received another customer quilt plus a charity quilt plus two quilts from a friend I'm quilting in trade for batting. So doing another of my own - plus Joseph's - will need to be delayed a bit longer.

1. Perfect weather for fertilizing the lawn
2. A husband who enjoys grocery shopping
3. King Tut variegated thread
4. Sleeping in this morning
5. Another come from behind Mariners victory

Wow! So many things to see on this one: the technique, the quilting, the fabric choices....I have the convergence book and want to try one, now I see how great yours turned out-it is encouraging.
