WIP Wednesday: TARDIS II wrap up

I finished the quilting on this Sunday evening--so excited!  I am on schedule to finish by the end of the month, yay!  
 
Lots of threads to tie off and bury.
Lots of threads to trim on the back.

Now I'm just waiting for an hour of well-lit alone time to trim/square it and then put on the binding!  And then wash it...and I am very nervous to do so with my first ever printed panel (the door sign) that I forgot to prewash after printing it.  I did use Bubble Jet Set on it, and after it was pieced in I made a second sign to pre-wash and see if the ink would hold.  Here's the results:

All are printed on a muslin.  Left: No Bubble Jet Set, pre-wash.  Middle: No Bubble Jet Set, after a hand washing.  Right: Pre-treated with Bubble Jet Set, hand washed in warm water, with soap.


Fingers crossed that the one in the quilt washes just as nicely.  I should have it finished to share on Friday!

  5. Lovely quilting. I've fot my fingers crossed for the wash. Regular quilts are nerve wracking enough, let alone having a panel you're concerned about.

  14. Very nice quilting. I especially like the sky! I've seen that middle result before. My mother gave my husband and I a wedding quilt with a printed label. Turns out the label wasn't set. It's only been a couple years and you can't read the label anymore. :/ That Bubble Jet Set seems to work rather well though! Good luck!
