The machine quilting on Sue's Japanese Quilt is...
D-O-N-E ! ! ! !
After 2 hours of solid stitching this evening I finally got there. My audio book finished 5 minutes later so I'd say it was good timing!
My right hand is still numb an hour later - I'm hoping that the feeling will return soon!!
The plan is to hand stitch around these Japanese letters and to embroider their English meaning on the panel. There's no machine stitching on these panels - there's about 9 of these and they're about 6" x 4" (I'm guessing here - too lazy to go and get tape measure).
