I finished this quilt top last week, but before I could sandwich it, I spent most of an evening trimming all the blue and black threads so they didn't show through the white fabric and slowly laying it onto the batting. I enjoy most stages of making a quilt, but not this. I was sorely tempted to leave them, but they'd've ruined it. BORING!

It's now about half-quilted and I haven't touched it for days, but I've just sent a set of instructions and a quilt off to Australian Patchwork & Quilting, so will get back into it tomorrow.

That's really the only reason that I don't like piecing with light fabric. I hate the trimming step!

Emma, the finished quilt is worth it - it's gorgeous :)

Have you ever thought about a light glue? I know some people use it to tame those edges!
