last finish for a while
again, click for a closer view.
It's been fast and furious hasn't it? That is what happens when you go on a quilting marathon and then have a stack waiting to be trimmed and bound-it seems you have a whole lot of finishes in a very short time. Actually, a few of these were pinned for quite a while waiting to be quilted. Here is the last of the pink quilts until I sketch out the quilting design on the remaining pink pinned top-I am going to be lazy and try and draw it on without unpinning it! anyway- this is a small donated top, that came about from taking apart the much larger quilt top it was originally. I managed to get two charity quilts that way! I ended up doing very dense and fun free motion quilting on it-not real stippling but sorta, kinda. At any rate, I had a total blast quilting it. I pulled scrap green binding from the bags of leftover bindings and it worked great. This will be going into a box destined for children in need in Mexico-check out my sidebar under Pam to learn more.
Would you believe it? I fell asleep last night designing a special baby quilt for a special long distance friend! In digging out my cute preprinted labels I found some great little kid fabric stashed away with them. I noticed a great floor tile design at some bathroom, somewhere that has stuck in my head as being a terrific quilt pattern idea. I think I will at least, sketch it out and play with some size ideas. I mean, I could use this idea as a leader/ender project while diving into my summer class project right? Isn't it great when a new idea comes to you??
