Help me Obi-Wan, you're my only hope.

As I quilted this, the Star Wars scene where Luke Skywalker is being taught by Obi-Wan Kenobi to 'trust the force' by having him sword fight a bobbing orb--blind-folded!--kept coming to my mind.

Black machine quilting on black fabric--I felt blind-folded and had also to 'trust the force'! It was pretty grueling! And not something to just work on for a while, until I came to a good stopping place, and take a break. There were no stopping places! It is One Long, Continual Line! Well, except for a shorter bit in the middle, but the outer quilting line is all one. The only breaks were when I ran out of bobbin thread.

I am being dramatic; it really wasn't *that* bad. But I do feel I earned this one.

Well done with sticking with it! I love the bright colours against the black! Quilting looks good!!

I know it's easy for me to say seeing as I haven't had black thread in my sewing machine for a long time, But by golly it was worth it. That is one gorgeous quilt!!
