Looks like the hard part is done. Now you can just stitch away.
I am quilting Kathi's quilt. Trying some new ideas. I really love the border.
I like that border, might steal that idea from you.
Feel free, I stole it from Pinterest!
Wow! You sure put a lot of thought in what you are going to do. This will truly be an heirloom quilt!
well the quilting is progressing. I finished the red sashing today and I can say I am VERY glad. I kept repeating what I think Chris said, it doesn't have to be perfect, if it was perfect a machine could have done it. But boy I did get sick of those beads. I settled on the beads because we put a long string of beads on the Christmas tree every year that my DD & I laugh about. You'd think by the end I would have been good at them, but not necessarily. Oddly I could do them pretty good right to left, the other directions were "inconsistent". How's that for a euphemism.
The black leaves were MUCH more fun and went very quickly. I probably should have made them smaller - I didn't look closely at the space I had to fill, some of the areas were tight. But I'm not inclined to change it. I'm fast approaching the "I want this done" phase of this quilt. I should probably do something else for a while.
Every time I see a photo of this quilt I think it is getting prettier and prettier.
If you think you need to take a break, go ahead and do that. Clean out and rearrange the kitchen cupboards or wax your car or .......
Also remember YOU are the only one who knows precisely where the "imperfections" are. It's BEAUTIFUL!
