I am finished with this little 38" quilt top. Though I like the look of the pure solid colors, I am SO ready to get back to working with batiks, or other fabrics that are thin and non-ravelly. I appliqued the curved mustard-colored section down by hand so that I could piece the outer 2 borders in a way that the stripes remained perfectly straight, but the crazy fabric nearly raveled off in my hands. I am 50-50 with whether I really love this. Since it shouldn't take a huge amount of time to actually quilt it, I will finish the project and hope for the best. I had been designing the quilting all along, and now just need to tweak a few things, finish a few client quilts, then I will quilt it.
Tomorrow I finish a client's 3rd quilt and I hope to have some great eye-candy to show.
I'm a semi-stay-at-home mom, full-time quilter (I wish!), with 3 little wildthings, ages 9-11-13. I love to garden, sew, craft, quilt, scrapbook when they give me the chance. Needless to say, that leaves little time for housework & cooking. I am a longarm quilter. Won't you let me turn one of your flimsies into a fabulous finished quilt??!
