After using the pantograph on another quilt I knew it had to be closer together so I made the rows 8" and from the start of one row to the start of another measured down 6 1/2". If you aren't a long arm quilter, I know this makes no sense to you at all.
One day I'll take photos so you will understand.
I don't have a lot of blue thread. This is my recent purchase and it is lovely to work with. NO lint! Bonus for a long arm quilter. It is from Cotton Mill Threadworks and this is OMNI ~~6000 yards of it. Well, okay there was that much when I started the quilt. The colour number is 3107 and it is called New England blue.
I used a So Fine in the bobbin almost the same colour.
I quilted the rows closer together and it ended up with a few of them. 5 or 6. Sorry I don't honestly remember.The tension was perfect! A long arm quilters delight!
This is the front of the quilt after trimming. The binding is sewn on now and I plan on taking it to stitch and chat to finish it off.
The backing isn't quite centered but close enough. I would rather have the first section near the top than the bottom section cut off. Maybe next time it will be perfect. I know what I did wrong and it can be corrected!
