Quilting clouds

I machine quilted my big cloud screen print in the dead of night. It took ages and i had to put my machine on the floor due to the size of the fabric. I was attempting to re-create a sail makers studio that i saw in Antigua. they have pits in the floor where the sewing machine is inset. The machinist sits down in the pit and the needle plate is level with the floor- ingenious! This was as low as i could get my machine to the floor without breaking my back. Of course a larger table would have been much better!

I turned this into a quilt with a turquoise binding around the edge.
