I remember when I couldn't wait to get to the quilting on finished project. But now, for one reason or another, there seem to be a number of quilts stuck in the "waiting to be quilted" category. Well, there's one less now. This is the second quilt in a row where I believe I have exercised self control and haven't gone over board with the quilting. I tried to keep it whimsical and light and think I did pretty close. Hmmm, should I try my luck on one more?
Design wall.....well not a lot going on there. I spent most of the weekend machine quilting. And I'm finding while I love and admire the Bargello quilts, I'm not really sure they are my cup of tea. I started Mirage to see if I would like and didn't really think about "what if I don't??". It's not as bad as Y-seams (which I'll avoid at just about any cost) but pretty darn near it. You just have to go soooooo slooooowwww. And Tyler really loves the one I'm suppose to make for him. So I did get started on Tyler's, stopped working on the other, but not really enough to show. Maybe next week or two weeks from now. His birthday is in June, so I'll have something by then!! How do you think a 19 year old boy would like a bargello hot pad for his Birthday????
ugliest fabrics I have, and see cut up that small, they are looking better already don't you think???? I still see a couple that are hopeless. There are 720 twosies waiting to become foursies'. A leader and ender project while I'm working on Tyler's bargello quilt.
Stop by Judy's to see what's on everyones' design wall (basket).
