What Are You Working On Now?   General Discussion

We all need a pop of color in our lives and you quilt puts color in yours.

I like the artist license you took with the quilting.

Thank you, Jo.  When my DSIL next visits my home and inspects my quilts she will surely make a comment about my unique quilting on this latest creation.

I will use your words – artist license – and give her another dose of the evil eye.

(This is my DSIL who always makes her quilts exactly how they look in the photo in the pattern or the book.)

A truly beautiful work of art, Judy.  I bet your eyes needed a bit of rest after looking at all that brightness!  It will surely perk up those rainy fall days to come.  

She makes the pattern exactly?  Geeze,   I just think of them as suggestions.

In 25 words or less, DSIL is a control freak and does not like surprises. I suspect that she would never start working on a quilt unless she knew exactly what it was going to look like at the end.

Where's the fun in that?  stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes

She has told me more than once that she thinks I am a very brave quilter.  Tee hee.

It looks like your quilt inspector approves of your latest finish. I think she is a very pretty kitty!


From: judyinohio


Yes, we agree that she is a very pretty girl. Her coloring is called "dilute tortoise" because a tortoise shell cat is black and brown and Misty's coloring is grey and beige.  She is also very, very soft.

My daughter has a cat with the same dilute tortoise, she calls her a faded tortoise shell. Sarah's cat is ultra fluffy and just the sweetest kitty. I love her coloration.

Congratulations on your finish!  I'm sure the fudge gave you loads of energy to get it done.  Your quilting is great and the quilt looks awesome on the white sofa.


From: judyinohio


Yes, there is nothing like a sugar/caffeine buzz to get some quilting done! 

Particularly since I was not trying to be meticulous.

Looks great, Judy.  Now you can call it done.  I do not see red ribbons when I look at it either.

I love Mackinac Island fudge.
