I just love the thought of "finished or not Friday" no pressure, sometimes you have a finish and sometimes, like this time it's really close. This is Friday morning and just maybe, if the quilting Gods stay on my side, it just might be finished today!!!! I'll have more details on batting, thread and rulers used on the final reveal coming soon....
|Jeanne's Spool Quilt - FMQ and ruler work all hand guided|
This is a quilt made by Jeanne, she does fabulous applique and her spools, wow!! I don't think there are two fabrics alike. I just adore this quilt, it's on my bucket list. As I was quilting, it hit me why I love this so much. It's the spools!! Anyone that knows me, knows I'm a thread junky. I LOVE thread! When I'm at a quilt store I swear it takes everything in me to NOT touch the thread when I walk by. More often then not, my fingers come in contact, if only for a brief moment! And I've just started collecting threads for embroidery. I'm in thread heaven, thread on the wall, thread for embroidery, spools that are being quilted, how can life get any better? I'm one lucky girl!
|Who doesn't love a little thread??|
Oh and in the spirit of not finished, here's my newest crazy, some Sue Spargo embroidery. I tried a little sampler and was completely smitten with this handwork. Current project is Squash Squad, I've finished 3 of nine. So I'm gonna take the 3 blocks as a finish. I can have my cake and eat it too!
