I am progressing on my WIP.
On my home machine, my favorite way to quilt is to do straight line quilting. I really like the way it looks. My Janome has a good feed system for this and I can go with the flow. It does require a considerable amount of twisting and turning and readjusting my quilt which results in the need for me to give my back and hands and eyes frequent breaks. This quilt is a large size baby quilt and will finish at 60" square, so it will take me several days. I am also up late most nights until my back finally says enough. I do enjoy the quilting process as long as I keep to my little bits at a time system.
Last night I ran out of thread on my 2000 yard King Tut White spool. It is the first time I have ever used up one of these big spools at home. I have had it for a couple of years and used it on several quilts. I do not have another. I buy these only once or twice a year at quilt shows where I get a good deal.
I dug through my stuff and came up with a 1200 yard spool of Coats and Clark 30 weight white cotton thread that is a good match. I cannot tell the difference. So I am up and quilting again.
Today on my computer breaks I am linking up again with

I am off and quilting again ...
Have a happy quilty day!
